SC reserves orders on Kerala temple treasure
New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday
reserved its interim orders on the question of permitting
inventory, videography and providing fool proof security to
the estimated over Rs 1.50 lakh crore wealth unearthed from
chambers of the famed Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Kerala.
A bench of justices R V Raveendran and A K Patnaik
felt that the massive wealth was perhaps at a "risk" in view
of the widespread publicity given about it in the media.
The apex court took on record the affidavit filed by
the state government and various other parties giving their
suggestions for proper maintenance and upkeep of the temple.
Significantly, the Kerala government asserted that the entire
wealth found at the shrine belonged exclusively to the Sree
Padmanabhaswamy Temple and nobody can lay claim on it.
The state government said that it has put in place a
security apparatus with an Additional Director General of
Police-rank officer monitoring the situation through a 24-hour
control room set up for the purpose. It was spending Rs 1
crore on security measures every month.
