J-K Govt. says all temple properties 'intact'

Jammu and Kashmir [India] Apr 28 (ANI): Amid protests over the alleged "desecration" of a temple in south Kashmir's Anantnag district, the state government on Friday said an investigation of the shrine's complex has found all its properties "intact".

A team of officers, headed by the Additional Deputy Commissioner, Anantnag, constituted by the concerned District Administration visited the religious place to ascertain the facts.

After investigations and examination of the complex, all the properties were found intact.

The main door to the premises was locked and keys were handed over to the community members living in the area.

The District Administration has appealed all sections of the society not to pay any heed to such rumours aimed at creating trouble.

Meanwhile, Kashmiri Pandit and Jammu-based organisations today staged protests here over the alleged "desecration".

The organisations, including All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC), Panun Kashmir, Jammu for India, and All State Kashmiri Pandit Conference, among others, demanded the registration of an FIR and the constitution of a Special Investigating Team (SIT) to take action in the case, which they claimed was "downplayed" by the state government.
