There has been a major commotion at Trimbakeshwar Temple on May 13 situated in the Nashik district of Maharashtra. A group of individuals from the Muslim community reportedly made an attempt to enter the revered temple to offer a green 'chadar' (scarf), prompting the Brahmin Mahasabha to call for an investigation.
Responding to the demand, the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra has ordered a Special Investigation Team (SIT) inquiry.
Following the closure of the sanctum sanctorum at approximately 10 pm on May 13, a large crowd attempted to forcefully enter the Trimbakeshwar temple.
The temple committee, in their complaint, stated that approximately 10-12 people forcefully entered the temple premises and attempted to offer green chadar and flowers.
However, the temple administration managed to prevent their entry. The temple administration promptly requested the police and state government to address the issue.
Trimbakeshwar Temple holds immense reverence for the Hindu community, and as per the management of the temple trust, entry into the temple complex is restricted to followers of Hindu faith only.
The Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, has taken decisive action by directing the registration of an FIR regarding the reported incident on May 13.
In addition, Fadnavis has instructed the establishment of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) led by officers holding the rank of Additional Director General of Police.
The SIT has been assigned the task of thoroughly investigating the incident.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) will not only investigate the current incident but also examine a similar occurrence that transpired last year at the Trimbakeshwar Temple.
