Brahma fiasco: 3 deputy leaders of Banajaga team depose before SJTA

Puri: The Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) yesterday recorded the statements of three deputy leaders of Banajaga team over the alleged gross mismanagement in ‘Brahma Paribartan’ rituals.

Senior team members like Durga Das Mohapatra, Ganesh Das Mohapatra, and Braja Das Mohapatra gave their personal deposition to Srimandir chief administrator Sursh Mohapatra yesterday at around 3 pm. Meanwhile the temple administration decided to record the statements of the daitapatis and servitors who are interested to give their personal views voluntarily.

Notably, Srimandir administration had appealed to the daitapatis for voluntary deposition for which their names would be kept confidential.
