In a disturbing incident, a priest at the Kali Temple in Jaipur, Rajasthan, was brutally attacked by masked assailants. The priest sustained serious injuries during the assault, which left him unconscious.
The incident has highlighted concerns over the rising crime rate in the state and the apparent challenges faced by law enforcement in apprehending criminals.
This attack comes shortly after the murder of a saint in Nagaur's Kuchaman, a case in which the culprits have yet to be apprehended, further raising questions about the efficiency of the police in solving such cases.
The priest has filed an FIR, and the investigation is underway. CCTV footage is being gathered to gather more information about the incident.
The priest of the temple said that he was sitting in the temple when two masked assailants suddenly came and attacked him fiercely with sticks.
The assailants brutally thrashed him, causing serious injuries on his back and other parts of the body. They also struck him on the head with a stick, rendering him unconscious.

The investigating officer, Harvansh Singh, confirmed that the case has been filed and information about the incident is being collected through nearby CCTV footage.
Prior to this incident, there was the murder of Saint Mohandas in Kuchaman, Nagaur, where the culprits are still at large. These cases have raised questions about the police's ability to apprehend the perpetrators in a timely manner.
