Thiruvananthapuram: Former Comptroller Auditor General Vinod Rai has submitted a status report on Kerala's Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in the Supreme Court. The report says that there were deficiencies and inadequacies in the maintenance of temple records.
The report said that the B chamber of the temple was opened about seven times, though the Travancore Royal family had opposed this. Silver ingots were taken out and gold vessels were deposited and subsequently taken out as evidenced from the entries in the registers maintained by the treasurer of the Temple, according to the report.
Earlier, Amicus Curiae Gopal Subramanian had raised serious concerns about irregularities in the wealth management of the temple in Thiruvananthapuram.
