Puri: State unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) filed an FIR over missing Ratna Bhandar keys of Jagannath Temple here today.
A team of BJP leaders lodged the complaint with Singhadwar police in Puri seeking action against the culprits involved in missing keys of Ratna Bhandar (treasury).
The missing keys of Ratna Bhandar incident in Sri Mandir has hurt the sentiments of crores of devotees of Lord Jagannath and the state government has also admitted the matter, the BJP said in the FIR.
Since the keys of Ratna Bhandar are missing, the possibility of stealing of costly jewelries stored at Ratna Bhandar is higher, the party said in the FIR appealing to the Singhdwar police to identify the persons behind the matter and take appropriate action.
Notably, Odisha government has ordered a judiciary probe into missing keys of Ratna Bhandar.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has appointed Justice Raghubir Dash, a retired Orissa High Court judge, to inquire into the circumstances leading to non-availability of the keys of Ratna Bhandar of Jagannath temple in Puri.
