The priest’s son made these allegations
Mukesh Kumar Prajapat alleged that Sarpanch Hardev Bhat and MLA Surdashan Singh are behind this incident. He said that we have been worshiping in the temple for generations. The sarpanch and MLA held a meeting and replaced the father with another priest, due to which the father is not going to the temple for the last one month. Even after this, he carried out such an incident. It was further alleged that the Sarpanch and the MLA wanted to build shops on the temple land.
Father opposed it, that’s why it was done. Mukesh further told that the doctors are saying that the father’s condition is serious.
