Kashi Vishwanath Temple Abandons the Plan to Catch Monkey in the Temple Complex

The initiative of Kashi Vishwanath Temple (KVT) administration to end monkey menace on the temple campus has been abandoned, courtesy mischievous rumour mongers who tried to instigate religious sentiments of the denizens on this sensitive issue.
"After three days of launching of a drive to catch monkeys by engaging a team of monkey catchers from Mathura, we had to stop midway as some mischievous elements started fanning rumours that monkeys are getting killed under the drive. It is a completely baseless charge and nobody came on record to oppose the drive. But, in view of possibility of law and order problem on this sentimental issue, we asked the team of monkey catchers to return," said KVT chief executive officer A K Awasthi on Tuesday.
