SC takes note of 3rd October violence at Jagannath temple, Puri

@airnewss
The Supreme Court today took note of the 3rd October violence at Puri's Jagannath temple during a protest against the introduction of a queue system for devotees and said no policeman should enter the temple with weapons and shoes.
 
Odisha Government told the apex court that 47 persons have been arrested in connection with the violence in the temple and said that situation is under control.
 
Last Wednesday, nine policemen were injured as violence 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. 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.
