Chitrakoot: In an interesting turn of events, thieves returned stolen 'ashtadhatu' idols to the priest of an ancient Balaji temple here claiming they were having nightmares after committing the crime.

According to reports, the matter was disclosed when Mahant Ram Balak Das, priest of the Balaji temple built inside Devdas Akhara, in Tarouha town (Chitrakoot district) lodged a complaint with the police stating that 16 idols worth lakhs, including a 5 kg idol of Shri Ram made of Ashtadhatu, was stolen from the temple.

On May 9, when the priest's wife reached the temple in the morning and find that the lock was broken and the idols kept inside missing.

Later, following the complaint, police registered a case and launched an investigation into the matter.

However, the case took an interesting turn when the priest found a sack filled with the stolen idols in front of his house in Mahavir Nagar only a week after the theft.

Along with the sack, Mahant also found a letter purportedly written by the thieves regretting their actions and seeking forgiveness and also mentioning their nightmares.
