Gurgaon, February 11, 2016: A Jain temple in Sector 4 was robbed in the early hours of Tuesday. The robbery of cash and silver ornaments worth lakhs was captured in its entirety on a CCTV camera installed inside the temple premises.

An FIR has been registered at Sector 5 police station and cops are trying to identify the thieves by studying the CCTV footage.

Rishabh Jain, president of the temple, said the thieves stole 2.5 kg of silver items, consisting of nine canopies, three bhav mandals and a plate, and around Rs 25,000 in cash from the donation box.

According to police, the thieves broke into Aadinath Jinalya at around 3.30 am from the roof. The CCTV footage shows two men using light from cellphones to break open the lockers in the dark. They spent around an hour inside the temple. In October last year, there was another robbery attempt on the temple, but it had then failed. It's not clear yet whether the same gang is behind Tuesday's theft.- timesofindia
