‘We’re fed up with scary dreams’: thieves return temple treasures in India (The Guardian)

The Guardian: ‘We’re fed up with scary dreams’: thieves return temple treasures in India. “Last week, the group stole 16 statues from a 300-year-old temple to Lord Balaji – an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu – in Uttar Pradesh, police inspector Rajiv Singh told Agence France-Presse. On Monday night, they left 14 of them near the house of the temple’s chief priest in Chitrakoot district, he said. ‘They also left behind a confession letter which said they were returning the idols because they were having scary dreams,’ Singh said. The note begged for forgiveness.”
