During an audit, it was found that the gold ornaments had been lacking, the temple stated, in line with Channel News Asia.

The temple didn’t point out the identify of the chief priest in its assertion. 

“Gold ornaments, which are frequently used for prayers, are kept under the custody of the chief priest in the inner sanctum of the temple. Regular audits are done to ensure that the gold ornaments are physically accounted for,” it stated.

The priest was questioned, and he later returned all of the lacking objects, the temple stated.

No different individual was concerned within the incident, in line with the Sri Mariamman Temple committee.

Police confirmed {that a} report was lodged and added {that a} 36-year-old man was arrested for prison breach of belief as a servant.
