Jain community protests against temple burglary

    Ajmer (Rajasthan), July 27: The Jain community here on Friday staged a protest march demanding arrest of the culprits who stole four statues from the Parshavnath Jain temple on July 16.

    Blaming the police of inaction, the community members said even after 10 days after the burglary of the statues, the personnel are not able to get any clues of the thieves.

    The community members said the stolen statues were of Chandra Prabha, two of Lord Mahaveera and one of Adinath made from an eight element compound. These statues were very scared for the community, they said.

    “Police assured us to find the robbers within one week, but even after ten days they do not know who robbed those statues” said Sushil Jain, a member of the community.

    Seeking recovery of the statues soon, Sunil Bilwari, another member said, “Temples are not safe and police are doing nothing.”

    The protest march which passed through main roads of the city was concluded at the police headquarters here where the demonstrators demanded effective action from the police to find the stolen statues and arrest the thieves.

    They also submitted a memorandum to the SP in this regard.

    Last year, statutes were also stolen from Nala bazaar region and similar incidents happened at the temple in dargah bazaar. – News Courtesy: Times of India
