Hindu activists say this is the third such incident in the state recently. In fact, the incident took place last month. Panch Lingeshwar temple is located in Kondapuram village near Kaveripakkam. It is the temple of Lord Shiva, which is taken care of and managed by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HCRE)department. It is a department of the State Government of Tamil Nadu. According to reports, when the temple caretaker arrived in the morning on June 20, 2021, to open the cupboard, he noticed that the locks of the temples of Kamakshi Amman and Durga Sannidhi were broken. When he went in, he was afraid to see that the clothes of the idols had also been taken off and burnt.
As soon as the incident came to light, devotees and people of Hindu Munnani Sangathan went to the police station and lodged a police complaint. They also staged a protest to arrest the culprits in the case at the earliest. People have been coming to this temple from far and wide. Some converts in the surrounding areas are being suspected of misdeeds. Hindu Munnani and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have alleged that the police did not take action even after several attacks on the temple.
