A police report was lodged by the temple authorities. Malaysia’s 28 million population comprises eight per cent ethnic Indians mostly Hindu Tamils.

Last week, two statues of deities were vandalised in Ara Kuda, prompting the temple committee to look into installing closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras for security purposes. The attack was believed to be a hate crime as no items were stolen from the temple.

Ramasamy said he had written to Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar urging the police to investigate the incident last week.
