    • Kendrapara
    • Prohibitory order under section 144 Cr PC was clamped today at a place near the district collectorate office in the heart of this district headquarters town after Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) sought for demolition of structures near a place of worship.

      Earlier the district wing of VHP had threatened to take law unto its hands to register their protest against illegal encroachment and construction work by minority community members near a place of worship.

    • Manmath Nath Sahu, secretary of VHP district wing, told reporters here this afternoon that the said 50 decimal plot near a mosque is now under unlawful occupation of minority community members. The community is trying to bring up permanent structure at the disputed site. Sahu, quoting documents and historical evidence, pointed out that a Hindu temple adorned the spot and that was subsequently vandalized and destroyed by foreign invaders.
