Police are on the lookout for some unidentified persons, who have stolen a unique rudraksha, weighing seven kgs, from a religious place at Kallar, near here.
The ‘Single Face’ rudraksha, in the shape of Shivalinga, was in the possession of Agathiar Gyan Peetham for the last two years. A pooja used to be performed every day.
The rudraksha, stored in a glass cabin, was found missing yesterday morning when the priests came to perform pooja. The authorities immediately lodged a complaint with Mettupalayam police in the rural limits.
Superintendent of Police, Ramya Bharati, formed a special team to trace the rudraksha and nab the culprits.
Some persons in the neighbourhood were being questioned, according to police.
