KURNOOL: Twelve outsourced employees, working at Sri Bramarambha Mallikarjuna Swamy Temple were suspended for unofficially collecting money from devotees. While conducting regular inspection, officials found the irregularities and took immediate action on them, temple executive officer S Lavanna said. 

The temple has close to 120 barbers on duty including regular and outsourced employees. However, most of them have been hired on a contract basis. Some of the outsourced barbers were found to have been taking money from devotees, the EO informed. He explained that the barbers are provided with all required items, but still they were pestering the pilgrims for more money.
