Bhadrak: Unidentified miscreants looted gold ornaments worth lakhs from Maa Dhamarai Temple at Dhamra in Bhadrak district last night.
The matter came to light after the priest of the temple spotted the main gate broken this morning.
According to sources, the miscreants broke open the doors of the temple late on Sunday night and made away with ornaments and cash.
On being informed by the temple authorities, police reached the spot and launched a probe.
Meanwhile, the loot has triggered resentment among locals, who alleged that temple loot has become a regular affair in the locality due to poor patrolling by police.
