Ramgarh: Unidentified men
damaged the centuries-old ancient idol of goddess Chhinmastika
(Kali) at Rajrappa in Ramgarh district and yanked off the
golden eyes early today.

In a bid to steal valuables, the miscreants also
caused some damages to the idol while trying to take away its
silver robes, Deputy Commissioner Pravin Toppo said.

Various agencies, including forensic department
officials, have begun investigation into the incident and the
district administration put sniffer dogs to be on the trail of
the miscreants.
