this is a popular 'rite'. at the Angala Parameswari Temple on Magadi Road, near the main sanctum there's a huge idol in front of which people put a lock on the grill and throw the key into the Hundi. I saw the same thing at another temple during our recent temple trip.

And don't tell me; just out of shot there's a little man selling padlocks: 100 rupees each...
