CUTTACK: The one-member panel, appointed to inspect and assess progress in renovation of Jagamohan of Sri Jagannath Temple at Puri, submitted its report to the Orissa High Court on Wednesday.


NK Mohanty, a retired civil engineer and a practising lawyer in the HC, submitted the status report in a sealed envelope. He had inspected the repair and renovation work on November 26.
The HC, which has also issued show cause notice to Government to file counter as to why the Puri district administration had not cooperated with Mohanty panel during the inspection, has posted the next hearing of the case to December 20.


To ascertain the veracity of the affidavits filed by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on progress of Jagamohan repair works, the High Court had appointed Mohanty as the one-man panel. The court had also directed Superintendent of ASI, Puri Collector and Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) to co-operate with Mohanty during his inspection.
