Naveen orders judicial probe into missing key of Ratna Bhandara


Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today ordered a judicial probe into the missing of the key of the Ratna Bhandara of Puri Srimandir.

The directive was issued after Chief Minister held a meeting with Law Minister Pratap Jena and chief administrator of Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA), Pradip Jena, at the State Secretariat here.

A retired judge of the Orissa High Court will probe into the incident, under which circumstances the key has gone missing and why it is not found, and submit a report to the State Government within three months, the directive read.

The missing of the key of Ratna Bhandara inside Jagannath temple in Puri had triggered political controversy after the state BJP on Sunday sought a clarification from the Chief Minister over the issue.
