After parking car (MP 42 C 4235) in four-wheeler parking lot they went for darshan. When they returned, the glass of the back seat of the car was broken and seven mobiles kept in it were stolen.

Purses of women and Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000 cash were also stolen. Visitors later reached Mahakal police station and lodged a complaint. At present, Mahakal police are searching for the accused.
