people were forced to perform worship with the dirty
water. The priests said that the day of Mouni
Amavasya is very important to perform ‘tarpan’

Excavation is underway on Mahaleshwar Temple premises
under the expansion work. The labourers at the site
witnessed that a newly installed DP of the MPEB

otherwise a big incident could have occurred. The
temple management committee immediately instructed to
disconnect power supply to the DP.
