Incumbent of the Temple Dutuwewe Jinananda Thera said that 4 persons identifying themselves as officers attached to the Weli Oya Army camp had tied the hands behind of the two civil defense guards at the temple, plastered their mouths before they fled with the moonstone.

Kebitigollawe police said that they have received a complaint from the chief incumbent in this regard and investigations are already begun.
