Cuttack: Odisha High Court issues interim order forbidding alienation of disputed property at Swargadwar in Puri. High Court issues notice to 11 parties including Chief Secretary, Revenue secy, PKDA and Puri Sankaracharya .
Swargadwar was set up in 1985 with the government allotting 900 decimal. In 1988, another hundred decimal was acquired for expansion of the crematorium. Due to some or the other reason the variety of this 51 decimal of land was not changed and hence it could not be transferred to the record of Swargadwar.
Swargadwar is spread over one acre facing the sea, nearly 15 acre around it has been encroached by influential persons. The sources added the 16 acre originally belonged to Jagannath temple while Puri Shankaracharya was the caretaker of the property. Subsequently, influential people grabbed the land and constructed some hotels and shops around Swargadwar.
