CUTTACK: A division bench of the Orissa High Court comprising Chief Justice Vineet Saran and Justice BR Sarangi on Tuesday directed the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to file an affidavit by a competent officer by December 22 indicating what has been decided for restoration work of Jagamohan of the Puri Jagannath Temple.

Earlier in the day, the ASI filed an affidavit stating that it has decided to implement the suggestions of IIT Madras which was in contrary to what was filed in an earlier affidavit. Considering such contradiction, the court again directed the agency to file a fresh affidavit.Simultaneously, the report submitted by NK Mohanty Commission, which was asked to make an assessment of the renovation work, was opened and it was found that the panel was in agreement with the suggestion by IIT Madras. The HC directed that the copies of the report be served on all parties requiring their response on the same. The matter is posted to Thursday.
