Tamil Nadu: Five minor arrested for destroying 25 idols and sculptures at temple in Tiruvarur district

25 idols and sculptures at the Periyanayaki Amman temple in Tiruvarur district were reportedly destroyed.

The Tamil Nadu police have arrested five minor boys for allegedly breaking 25 cement idols and sculptures at the Periyanayaki Amman temple in Tiruvarur district, reported The Times of India.

Reportedly, the minor boys were caught by the police after they broke into the temple to steal iron rods within the figures, which could then be sold off to purchase alcohol. The incident occurred before the consecration ceremony at the temple was supposed to take place.

The idols which were destroyed included those of Lord Murugan, Periyanayaki, Kala Bairava, while sculptures which were damaged were those of different animals.

The accused minor youths are currently being held at a juvenile home in the town of Thanjavur.
