Guruvayur: Tensed situation prevailed at Guruvayur Parthasarathy temple on Thursday as local people protested the temple’s takeover by Malabar Devaswom Board.

The Devaswom officials reached the temple to take over its administration today morning following the expiry of the High Court’s stay over the matter. However, the devotees prevented the officials from entering the temple and shut the doors from inside and started prayers. They said that the Devaswom need not interfere since the temple is functioning properly.

The devotees further alleged that Devaswom has dubious intensions behind the takeover. Police, who rushed to the spot, tried to pacify the situation, but failed.
