Chennai: The Madras high court has warned that the officials of HR & CE would face serious consequences, if it is proved that the documents relating to peacock idol with a flower in its mouth in Kapaleeswarar temple in Mylapore, which has allegedly disappeared, were destroyed.

A division bench comprising Justices R. Mahadevan and P.D. Audikesavalu made the above observation orally after a government advocate produced a letter from the HR & CE stating that the documents relating to this idol were destroyed.

 

Directing the Idol wing officials to enquire and file a report, the bench posted to next week, further hearing of the petition filed by Rangarajan Narasimhan of Srirangam.

In his petition, the petitioner alleged that the peacock idol with a flower in its mouth installed in Kapaleeswarar temple in Mylapore had disappeared long back and instead another peacock idol with a snake in its mouth has been replaced which was against the Agama. Hence, he sought to remove the present trustees and officials of the temple and constitute a committee headed by a retired judge of the high court with Agama experts to administer the temple.
