JAMMU, INDIA, December 8, 2001: An emergency meeting of Bua Datti Temple committee was held at the temple complex after the conclusion of the annual festival. According to a report from the meeting, surprise was expressed at the behavior of government administrative personnel deployed at the gate of secretariat who unnecessarily harassed the management and devotees entering the temple complex.
