No Policeman Should Enter Puri’s Jagannath Temple

The Supreme Court on October 10, 2018, taking note of October 3, 2018, violence at Puri’s Jagannath temple said that no policeman should enter the temple with weapons and shoes.

The violence that broke out during a 12-hour bandh called by a socio-cultural organisation, protesting introduction of a queue system for devotees visiting the Jagannath Temple had injured nine policemen.

The Odisha government told the top court that 47 people have been arrested in connection with the violence and that the situation is under control now. It also added that the violence had not happened inside the Jagannath Temple but the office of the temple administration was attacked and ransacked.

A temple official had said that the queue system was introduced on an experimental basis and a review would be done as locals and servitors opposed it.
