SE­CU­RITY BREACH DUR­ING SNAN PRO­CES­SION UP­SETS KINNAR AKHADA

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Htspotlight -

PRAYA­GRAJ : Kinnar Akhada, a monas­tic or­der of trans­gen­der seers, also par­tic­i­pated in the third and last ‘shahi snan’ pro­ces­sion of Kumbh on Sun­day. The trans­gen­der seers once again at­tracted devo­tees dur­ing their pro­ces­sion led by Acharaya Ma­haman­dalesh­war Laxmi Narayan Tri­pathi. The seers took a holy dip in Sangam and prayed for the well-be­ing of peo­ple, peace and pros­per­ity across the world. How­ever, Acharaya Tri­pathi ex­pressed deep con­cern over the ‘se­cu­rity breach’ dur­ing the pro­ces­sion. “It was the duty of the po­lice to en­sure that no one en­tered the pro­ces­sion. But this hap­pened in our pro­ces­sion. Many pil­grims came near the rath, while en­ter­ing the pro­ces­sion when it was head­ing to­wards Sangam from the pon­toon bridge. This is a se­ri­ous mat­ter,” said Acharaya Tri­pathi.
