In a significant development, a stolen precious idol and silver crowns have been recovered from a 150-year-old temple in Jharkhand’s Palamu district. The idol, a representation of Lord Laddu Gopal made of ‘ashtadhatu,’ and the silver crowns of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi were stolen from the renowned temple situated on the bank of the Koel river in Medininagar on the night of September 11.

Formation of Special Investigation Team (SIT)

To investigate the theft, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed under the guidance of Superintendent of Police Reeshma Ramesan. The entire theft incident was captured on CCTV cameras, which provided crucial evidence for the case.

Arrest of Prime Accused and Recovery of Stolen Idol

Acting on a tip-off, the main accused, Dilkash Roshan (30), was apprehended from Delhi’s Govindpuri area with the assistance of Delhi Police officers. Subsequently, based on the information provided by Roshan, the police successfully recovered the stolen idol. The idol had been buried near the main gate of a dental college in Garwah.

Previous Arrests and Investigation Progress

Earlier, two individuals were arrested in connection with the case. The stolen crowns had been seized, and among the arrested was Md Sohail, an accomplice of Roshan, along with a jeweler named Upendra Kumar Seth from Bihar’s Sasaram. It was revealed that Sohail and Roshan had sold the stolen crowns to the jeweler.

Roshan carried out the theft inside the temple while Sohail waited outside on a motorcycle. The recovery of the stolen idol marks a significant breakthrough in the case and showcases the collaborative efforts of law enforcement agencies.
