Odisha govt examining report on Ratna Bhandar missing keys: Minister

Bhubaneswar: The Inquiry Commission’s report on missing keys of Ratna Bhandar of the Shree Jagannath Temple in Puri is being examined by the Odisha Government, said Minister of State (Home) Tusharkanti Behera in the State Assembly, today.

The minister was replying to a question by MLA Ganesh Ram Singh Khuntia.

Behera said the government has formed Commission of Inquiry in as many as 24 matters since 2000. Currently, none of them are functional.

The government has so far received 20 complete reports and one interim report from the panels while three commissions were closed, the minister said.

Out of the received reports, 13 of them were presented in the Assembly. Presentation of remaining eight reports in the Assembly was under the consideration of the government, he said.

Notably, Justice Raghubir Dash commission on the missing keys of Ratna Bhandar had submitted its report to the state government on November 29, 2018.

The commission was constituted on June 6, 2018, two months after the keys were found to be missing during a bid to inspect the Ratna Bhandar.

Opposition BJP and Congress have been demanding to table the panel’s findings in the Assembly.
