In swift action, Kanakadurga Devasthanam Executive Officer Surya Kumari, IAS, has been shifted from her post as she was found to be in the know of the Tantrik ritual performed in the sanctum sanctorum on December 26 night.
As the controversy took some dangerous turn with the rumors making the rounds that the Tantrik ritual was conducted to make Lokesh Chief Minister on Tuesday, the government took a swift action pinning the whole responsibility on the EO even as an inquiry was going on.
The question why Tantrik ritual was performed still remains unanswered. According to rumors, Surya Kumari herself made the arrangements for the Bhairavi puja and even took help of the police in conducting the ritual because she did that all for her own personal benefit.
Surya Kumari has been replaced by Ramachandramohan, who was the EO of Simhachalam temple. The government asked him to take over Kanakadurga temple with immediate effect
