PURI, INDIA, July 24, 2013 (Deccan Hearld): The woman constable involved in an incident with Madhav Prasad Bhattarai was suspended pending an inquiry. The woman constable stopped him and started scolding him, presuming him to be a non-Hindu and foreign national.
The incident has turned out to be a major embarrassment for the Puri temple administration as the shrine has a long association with the royal family of Nepal. The king of Nepal enjoys certain special privileges when he visits the temple. Despite being foreigners, Nepalese are allowed to enter the temple because they are Hindus.
