Police out-post in Moodbidri: The commissioner said, a proposal to set up a police outpost at Moodbidri had been submitted the City Police Commissionerate which is impending before the government.
The City Police Commissionerate had issued detailed guidelines for the safety of Basadis in Moodbidri after the theft of precious idols from Siddantha Mandira of Guru Basadi in Jain Mutt at Moodbidri last year. The police had instructed the authorities to deploy private security personnel. However, citing the reason of no income from basadis, the authorities are seeking the government’s help to safeguard the basadis.
Responding to a query regarding the theft at Shanthinatha Basadi on Tuesday, Mr Hithendra said that the cops suspect the local labourers involvement in the theft as none of the idols have been stolen and have fled away with cash from hundi. The police said thieves broke open a door that was not properly locked and entered the basadi.
The Cops are investigating the case and the burglars will be tracked soon.
