Then riding in a palanquin, Baba came out with the royal splendour. Baba went to Siddhavat in a silver palanquin. Worship was done here.

Prior to the commencement of the traditional procession, mayor Mukesh Tatwal, collector Asheesh Singh and SP Satyendra Kumar Shukla performed customary worship of Lord Kalbhairav’s replica.

A large number of people were seen present on the scheduled route of the procession to shower floral petals.
