Preparations for Diwali may still go ahead for Hindu devotees at Veiwalai Subdivision in Raralevu despite a break-in at their temple last Friday night.

The Raralevu Durga Ramayan Mandli trustee, Vinod Prasad, said the incident had saddened their community as they prepare for Diwali.

The stolen items were two cooking pots, a four-burner gas stove, kitchen utensils and five litres of cooking oil.

“Diwali is just a few days away and they have stolen the only items we have prepared for Diwali and now we have to call a meeting on how we will go about with our cooking for Diwali,” he said.

Mr Prasad said it was not the first time that their worship place was broken into.

The suspects gained entry by removing a few window louver blades.

Police spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri  confirmed they had received a report and were investigating.
