Members of the local temple committee and locals were in a meeting at the temple premises till around 12am on Thursday discussing the development work for the temples. 

On Friday morning, locals found the Radha Govinda and Kali temples in Mostafapur and Kali Temple in Kundubari with idols desecrated.

The miscreants also took away money, electric lamps and a sharp boti (a cutting instrument used in the kitchen) from the temples.

Ram Gopal Sarkar, president of the Radha Govinda and Kali temple in Mostafapur said: "Our temple was established more than hundred years ago. No such incident ever occurred here till today.

“After this incident, anger grew among the local Hindu community. We want justice for those who have done this.”

“Whoever caused such incidents is still unknown. The temple committee have not even been able to give a suspect's name. 

“Police will seriously investigate and take action against the miscreants.” 

In addition, additional police have already been deployed in the area, added the OC.
