Puri District Officials Condemn Attack On DM During ‘Niladri Bije’

**Puri:** The district officials on Thursday condemned the attack on District Collector Arvind Agarwal by some unruly ‘sebayats’ (temple servitors) during the ‘Niladri Bije’ (return of deities to sanctum sanctorum after Bahuda Yatra) when he opposed the breach of ban imposed on climbing atop the chariot by the daughter of a temple servitor.

Earlier on the day a meeting of all district officials was held in the chamber of Puri ADM Uddhab Majhi attended by Sub-Collector Madhusudan Das and DIPRO Lalatendu Mahapatra prominent among others.

Later they walked down to the office of the Superintendent of Police (SP) demanding arrest of all the accused soon.

In the absence of the SP, they talked to ASP Banabihari Sahu and submitted a memo on behalf of their association.

Need to be mentioned that, six servitors have already been arrested and sent to jail while the main accused are still absconding.
