ASI superintendent carries out spot inspection at Puri Srimandir


Puri: Amid the ongoing row over Puri Srimandir Parikrama project, ASI Superintendent Archaeologist Arun Mallick carried out on-the-spot inspection along with the SJTA chief administrator Vir Vikram Yadav on Friday.

The ASI superintendent arrived in Puri for the first time since the ASI’s affidavit in Orissa High Court. The ASI in the affidavit stated that they have not accorded any valid permission to the state government to undertake the Heritage Corridor project close to the 12th Century Shree Jagannath Temple.

ASI Superintendent Arun Mallick inspected how and where CCTVs will be installed inside the shrine in coordination with the ASI. He also inspected the Heritage Corridor project.

The High Court, on the other hand, has directed the SJTA and the ASI to jointly carry out the work of the Puri Srimandir Parikrama project.
