Puri: The Niti Administrator of Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) on Sunday ordered a probe into the incident of scuffle between two personnel of Jagannath Temple Police (JTP) that saw blood stains in the Srimandir premises leading to disruption of rituals of the Trinity.

An office order in this connection was issued by the Chief Administrator stating, ” It has come to notice that there was a scuffle between two JTPs at Beherana Dwar inside the Temple on April 18, 2021 which led to “Mahasnana” of the deities. Since it is a serious issue, the Administrator (Security) is hereby directed to cause an inquiry into the matter to find out the facts of the case and submit his report by April 19, 2021.”

“All the rituals have been normalised after the Maha Snana. An inquiry has been ordered in to the incident and we will decide on the further course of action after receiving the report tomorrow,” said Jitendra Sahu the Niti Administrator of SJTA.

The Chief administrator has further asked the Security Administrator to fix responsibility for such incident with suggestions for corrective action against the culprit.

As per tradition, the Holy Trinity undergo ‘Maha Snana’ rituals (grand purification) whenever any case of untoward incidents lead to blood spill in the temple premises.
