Puri: Amid public outrage and political blame game over the missing keys of the inner Ratna Bhandar, Puri Collector Arvind Agarwal said duplicate key of the inner chamber of Ratna Bhandar has been found.
The district Collector informed that the key was recovered from an envelope kept inside a locker of district record room.
Informing the development, Agarwal said that the key was found by one of the two teams that were formed to investigate and look for the keys.
The teams were searching for the key for the last five days and finally one of the teams got a set of duplicate keys from a sealed envelope kept inside the locker of district record room, he said.
“One of the teams found a sealed envelope superscribed “duplicate keys of Ratna Bhandar” written on it,” said Agarwal.
However, devotees, temple servitors and political parties are not convinced.
