Ayodhya: Thief returns idol of Lord Ram after he is rattled by nightmares

Shockingly, the idol was stolen from Shri Yugal Madhuri Kunj temple in the high-security yellow zone of Ayodhya city. The theft was a challenge that had perplexed the city police.

In a rare gesture, a thief turned up at the temple to return the precious ashtdhatu idol of Lord Ram within days of stealing it in Ayodhya. As per reports, the thief named Ajay Shukla surprisingly walked into the temple himself with the same idol that he had robbed on May 27.

Shukla broke open the lock when the priest had left the premises for an afternoon nap. He claimed to have been suffering from severe body ache since he lifted the idol from Shri Yugal Madhuri Kunj temple. He also alleged to be rattled by nightmares, making him lose his peace of mind. Shukla who is a resident of Gonda city confessed from the time of the theft nothing seemed to be going right with him. It is these unexplained intimidations that forced him to return the idol back to the shine within 5 days.

After returning the ashtdhatu idol to the priest, he is said to be relieved of the pain. However, he was not lucky enough to escape the police net and was nabbed.

Shockingly, the idol was stolen from Shri Yugal Madhuri Kunj temple in the high-security yellow zone of Ayodhya city. The theft was a challenge that had perplexed the city police. SP Jogendra Kumar had formed several teams, which were in the lookout for the culprit. That’s when Shukla walked into the temple on his own.

While the devotees and temple management were happy to receive their deity they were bewildered at his story prompting him to take this strange step.

Priest Raj Bahadur confirmed that Shukla walked the idol to the temple himslef. The idol will be placed back in the sanctum sanatorium after due rituals are performed.

On the other side, SP Kumar confirmed that Shukla has been arrested and the legal procedure has been initiated against him.
