Puri: In an unprecedented turn of events, unidentified miscreants allegedly vandalised over 40 Chulahs (earthen oven) inside the Rosaghara (kitchen) of Srimandir here, raising questions on security arrangements at the centuries-old shrine.
It is suspected that the miscreants vandalised the Chulahs after preparation of food for evening evening rituals yesterday. However, who and why committed such act is yet to be ascertained.
Meanwhile, the temple administration has begun an inquiry into the incident. District Collector Samarth Verma also visited the temple to take stock.
