Puri: In yet another selfie taken inside the Srimandir gone viral on social media, a youth claiming to be a temple servitor or Suara Sevayat has shared his picture from Anand Bazar on his social media account. This raises serious questions on temple security.
While visitors to the temple are thoroughly checked and not allowed to carry mobile phones into the shrine, the same does not apply for the temple servitors.
The picture caption says that it is from Anand Bazar where the Abhada or Mahaprasad is sold. The youth claims to have been an engineering technician, astrologer, servitor all rolled into one.
While the exact time and date of the clicking of the selfie is yet to be ascertained the incident has put the temple administration in muck. Meanwhile, the picture drew sharp criticism from all corners.
