HYDERABAD, JUNE 6. The Laxmi Narasimha Temple at Yadagirigutta was burgled and one of its watchmen, Ram Bahadur, was stabbed to death. Bahadur would remain inside the temple after the main doors were locked every evening at 10 p.m. The victim's body was found in a pool of blood by priests arriving at 4 a.m. for the morning worship and immediately the police were alerted. Unidentified culprits managed to break open the lock of the main hundi (collection box) but had to escape empty-handed as they could not reach collections at the bottom of the 8-foot-deep hundi.
