Published on 16 August, 2016 at 1:33 pm By

As many as 769 gold pots, valued approximately at Rs.186 crore, are missing from Kerala’s Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple.

According to a report submitted in Supreme Court by former Comptroller and Auditor General of India Vinod Rai said that the missing  treasures needed a detailed probe.

Rai told the apex court that the gold pots are untraceable and 30 percent of the gold sent for melting and purification was lost.

“Gold worth Rs 2.50 crore was lost because of change in ratio adopted for purification. Moreover, the residual quantity of gold was not recovered from the contractor which lead to a loss of Rs 59 lakhs,” The New Indian Express quoted sources as saying.

 



 

Further, the Rai  suggested changes in the temple’s security arrangements. “Priceless items in the temple should be housed in a modern museum and security installments need to be altered a bit,” he said.
