Men jailed for stealing from temple

July 29, 2015 4:51 am

A 26 year old resident of Fletcher Road in Vatuwaqa who stole $5 from a Hindu Temple in Nabua has been given an eight month sentence suspended for two years.

Jashmeet Singh, who was unemployed at the time, pleaded guilty to Sacrilege in the Suva Magistrates Court.

He was hiding inside the temple after a prayer session last December and later stole $5 from the offering plate.

Singh was later reported to police by the members of the temple.
