"There is a small gymnasium on the outskirts of Yeleswaram, it is almost the end of the town and next to a graveyard. There is a 2 ft Hindu God idol kept on a 3 ft rock nearby that gym. Usually, locals who go to the gym worship the idol, and offer prayers on Tuesdays," he said.

"For a few days, nobody went to that area due to rain. On Wednesday, some people went to the gym and saw the idol in a broken condition. They reported the matter to the police at around 6.30 pm and subsequently we registered a case," he added.

Police officials have filed a case under Sections 295 and 427 of the Indian Penal Code and further investigating the matter.
