Puri/UNI: A servitor of the Shri Jagannath Temple, Puri n Sunday lodged a complain with the police against online marketplace Amazon for unauthorised sale of "Nirmalya Mahaprasad" of lord Jagannath in its marketing network.

Shambhunath Khuntia, the Servitor, lodged a complaint with the Singhadwar Police seeking action against the marketing agency.

Earlier, selling of Nirmalya by a Bhubaneswar based online marketing agency was stopped after temple administration filed complaints against a number of persons.

When contacted Jeetendra Kumar Sahu, the administrator rituals of Sri Jagannath temple said as per record of rights , only the Suaras (temple cooks) are authorised to sell Nirmalya Mahaprasad at the Simhadwar Aruna Stambh area.

We are consulting legal experts to take action to stop this, he added.
