THRISSUR: The Malabar Devaswom Board has taken over the Parthasarathy temple in Guruvayoor despite oppositions from various Hindu organisations. Though the board had come to take over the temple earlier, they had to return following strong oppositions.
Malabar Devaswom Board officials under the leadership of board executive officer T C Biju, and Chavakkad Tahsildar K V Ambrose arrived Tuesday morning. A team of police also arrived under the leadership of city police commissioner Rahul R Nair to keep the situation under control. A battalion of police arrived at the spot by around 6.00 am.
The temple was being controlled by an administrative committee set up by the people. The temple employees had asked the devaswom board to take charge of the temple eight years ago when allegations arose against the administrative committee. Subsequently the case went to the Kerala High Court and the Supreme Court.
