Twin temple thefts rock Kochi; gold, cash stolen Thirty sovereigns of gold and Rs 60,000 were stolen from the office of the Kottuvalli Thrikkapuram Devi Temple.

Kochi: In separate incidents of burglary, miscreants made away with 50 sovereigns of gold from two temples at Paravur here in the wee hours of Wednesday.

While 30 sovereigns of gold, including the holy ornaments adorning the deity, and Rs 60,000 were stolen from Kottuvalli Thrikkapuram Devi Temple, Sree Narayana Temple lost 20 sovereigns of gold and some cash.

The burglars entered the sanctum sanctorum of the Thrikkapuram temple after breaking through the roof. As they could not find any valuables inside, they went for the temple's office. They stole the gold and money from the office.

They also took away the CCTV cameras installed at the Sree Narayana temple. A police probe is on into the incidents.
