A temple in Mambau, Negri Sembilan, has been robbed of deity statues worth RM50,000, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The Sri Karumariamman Temple had just celebrated its annual festival on Monday.

But when temple priest P. Vijayan went to perform morning rituals at 6.45am on Thursday, he was horrified to find the main gate open.

He found that 15 statues made of impon (five precious metals) were missing and lodged a police report.

It is believed that the thieves could not open the safety locks in the inner sanctum and resorted to breaking the doors.

Police are investigating the case.
