The head priest of Ajmer Sharif Dargah in Rajasthan’s Ajmer was on Sunday stopped from entering the shrine as he appointed his son, Naseeruddin Ali, as his successor. Naseeruddin questioned the move to stop the head priest from entering the shrine.

Terming it as hooliganism, he said, “How can they stop the head priest from entering the Dargah? This is hooliganism, even the administration is helpless. They have locked us out.”
