In spite of heightened security checks by a team of 10 special protection force personal and constant monitoring of the Sri Varaha Lakshmi Narasimha temple premises with 64 CCTV cameras and round the clock vigilance by the 51 private security guards in three shifts, 550 kilos of silver ornaments has been siphoned off from inside the temple in Visakhapatnam.
6 suspects have been detained and 4 out of them said to be involved in the alleged stealing of silver ornaments, as per the police information. All this and more is happening due to the dereliction of duties coupled with slack supervision from the higher-ups.
With this development, serious questions have been raised about the future safety of the ornaments and the role of security personal in safeguarding and the accountability of the temple staff in this regard. In the past, many scams were unearthed like cumulative shortage of 30,000 laddus and gold scam by creating fake invoices and cash bills in the name of the Devasthanam and other glaring lapses in preparation of laddus and pulihora prasadam and illegal quarrying on the hill by the donors without the knowledge of the temple.
