Pagoda put to distinctly impious use in capital

A monk in Por Sen Chey’s Tumpaing Krasaing commune stumbled across a motorbike, a torch and drug paraphernalia left in the shrine at his pagoda on Tuesday night.

Police officers who visited the scene suspect the items were left there by thieves for safekeeping.

However, the monk said he frequently saw young couples sneak into the pagoda for “romantic moments” and drug use.

The bike, torch and unspecified drug gear are now being held at a nearby police station.
