Ratna Bhandar Key Missing: HC Issues Notice To Odisha Govt
Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today issued a notice to the State Government asking for response in connection with a petition pertaining to the missing of keys of Shree Jagannath Temple’s Ratna Bhandar.
The High Court was hearing a petition filed by Puri-based social worker Dilip Baral who has sought directive of the court to make the report of Justice Raghubir Das Commission public.
The court has directed the Chief Secretary and the Law Department Secretary to submit response in this regard.
“Though the Justice Raghubir Das Commission had submitted its report in 2018, it has not been tabled in the Assembly. The report is yet to be made public,” said lawyer Anup Kumar Mohapatra.
The State Government had in 2018 formed the commission led by Justice Raghubir Das, a retired judge of the Orissa High Court, to probe the missing of the keys.
The panel had submitted a 324-page report to the Home Department.
