The incident was reported around late on Saturday at the Diknogor village near the district town, said police.

The idol of Hindu god Mahadev at a temple on the premises of Diknogor resident Govinda Saha’s house was desecrated around 9pm. 

“I came out of the home after hearing noises coming out of the temple and saw some people vandalizing the idol. They fled as soon as I went there,” said Saha before adding that he could not identify the perpetrators.

The incident was reported to the police immediately, he added.
