Four panchaloha idols were stolen from Ukkira Narasimha Perumal Temple at Puravalur in Thiruvengadu here on Wednesday. The theft came to light on Thursday when the temple was opened for morning puja. The idols of the two-foot presiding deity Ukkira Narasimha Perumal, Sridevi, Boodevi and Chakarathazhvar in the sanctum sanctorum were missing.

The idols were newly cast for the temple’s samprokshanam last June. A case is yet to be registered.
