It said the robbers gained entry to the church(file image) after removing the protective iron rods and burglary proofs at the church entrance.
The robbery was according to the report seen as sacrilege by the church members.
“Not a single item was left. The only microphone spared by their filthy hands was the one kept in daddy’s office. I guess it was spared due to oversight. Every other item connected to music was taken away, though no cash was stolen because as a rule, we don’t keep cash in premises,” a church member told the paper.
