In continuation a spate of robberies targetting South East Asians in Toronto comes this news.

It is reported that Desi house holds are being targetted heavily for the gold as the value of this gone through the roof.

Now the robbers have the guts to do it to a temple.

What NEXT ?.

Police Investigate Robbery At Hindu Temple
March 17, 2011 10:22 PM


PENN HILLS (KDKA) — Police are searching for suspects after authorities say a security guard was tied up overnight during a robbery at a Hindu temple in Penn Hills.

The incident happened just before midnight at the Sri Venkateswara Temple on McCully Drive.

Authorities say four armed men entered the temple and the security guard was confronted.

“He pushed the individual, tried to defend himself and there were three other individuals outside,” Penn Hills Police Chief Howard Burton said.


His keys were taken and he was bound and gagged.

“Pointed a gun at him, threatened him, took his money, took his cell phone, took a laptop computer,” Burton said.

The robbers, described as four black males, took the guard’s keys and stole three small safes from the temple’s offices.

“They were not able to enter the main temple because of the security system,” Dr. Nagu B. Krishnappa, S.V. Temple Chairman, said.

About $10,000 to $15,000, along with jewelry and credit cards, was taken.

The suspects got away before authorities arrived at the scene. The thieves appeared to know what they were doing.

“We’re looking at people who may have cleaned down there or prior employees who did lawn work or something of that nature,” Burton said.

The security guard was not injured

Do not worry, That particular God of that perticular temple should punish those 4 guys. Leave it on almighty. Since the god is deprived of some quantity of gold, my appeal to all the devotees, please volunteer to donate some gold to the victimised temple and to please the god. please please...

Terry Jones and his group burned Quran in Florida. Of-course, I am not a fan of this book burning or attack on beliefs. If i say "That particular God of that particular temple should punish those for book burning" is it not sarcastic?
