On Monday, june 17, unidentified miscreants destroyed Hindu deity idols at the city's Sri Sitaramula shrine. The event happened at the medchal police Station's hamlet of Dubilpura. The Hanuman statues at the Sri Sitaramula temple were allegedly smashed by some unidentified individuals, according to the locals.
 Social media users have been sharing images and videos of the temple that were taken after the event. The police have confirmed that there is damage to the idols and have opened an investigation. The village's incensed residents have called for action to be done against the miscreants. 

Here is a perfect example of how, within a month or two following the Endowments Commissioner's meeting with higher authorities emphasizing the need to conserve the temple grounds, the State Endowments Department failed to live up to the expectations set forth.
The Veerabhadra Swamy temple in Chintalmet is the most recent in the long history of temples in Hyderabad's Old City grabbing land. The temple features caverns with a large backyard and foreyard, and it is bordered by a rocky terrain with hillocks. As per the accounts of the devotees that frequent the temple, it is believed to be around 400 years old.
But land grabbers have taken advantage of the abandoned temple that few Hindu worshippers ever visit.
