According to reports, the hair was donated by devotees at the Varaha Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple near the city of Vishakhapatnam. Police suspect that they entered from a terrace using a rope and then headed to the store on the first floor, and that the theft may be an inside job.The stolen hair worth $10,950 (750,000 Rupes)…

Thousands of pilgrims from the surrounding states visit the temple every day, and shave their heads to offer their hair as an offering to the deity. A special division called the Kesh Kandana Sala (tonsuring centre) sorts the hair according to length and quality, and then auctions it off.
