A temple priest gave blessings to people by putting his feet on their heads in Odisha's Khordha district on October 08. The incident took place in Banpur area of Khordha district on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami. While speaking to ANI, the priest R Samantaray said, "Other rituals were also followed, 'jajman' have faith in us.
