Puri: A local man unauthorisedly climbed atop Jagannath temple in Puri up to the shrine’s Neelachakra, today. He has been identified as servitor of Agneshwar Mahadev temple Chandrasekhar Panda.
On being noticed, Chandrasekhar was asked by Jagannath Temple Police (JTP) personnel to immediately get down. “The man was wandering around Neelachakra on the temple’s dome,” an official said.
Chandrasekhar was initially spotted by a few Chunara servitors of the Jagannath temple. The wrongdoer got down through roof of the Dakshinaghar after being repeatedly insisted for it by JTP personnel.
Later, Chandrasekhar was detained by Singhadwar police and is being interrogated in this regard.
It is pertinent to mention, in a security breach at Jagannath temple here, another man had climbed atop Natamandap of the shrine on August 14. He was identified as Jitu Gouda (32) of Ganjam district.
