Updated: February 17, 2023 3:10 pm

The Jharkhand High Court has given its verdict on Shiv Baraat in Deoghar. The Deputy Commissioner of Deoghar has been instructed to clarify the situation. On Friday, the Jharkhand High Court asked the Deputy Commissioner of Deoghar to publicise it from print media to electronic media. Along with this, the court has said that section 144 imposed by the administration during the Shiva procession on Mahashivratri will not apply to the common people. However, the route that the administration has decided, the Shiv Baraat will take place from that route. Dr. Nishikant Dubey’s lawyer Prashant Pallav gave this information. He said that the administration has intelligence input that there could be some disturbance on the route, through which the Shiv Baraat used to take place. That’s why the route has been changed.

Maha Shivratri Mahotsav Samiti President Abhishek Anand Jha said that after the decision of the Jharkhand High Court, there will be a meeting of the Shiv Baraat Steering Committee and further strategy will be discussed. The chairman said that the committee wants the procession should be conducted in a better way and more and more people should be able to see the procession; there should be no stampede situation anywhere.

Mr. Jha said that the committee urges the district administration to withdraw its order for Lord Shiva, as it is not organized by any particular party. This is a question of the faith of lakhs of Shiva devotees. If the officials of the administration have faith in Lord Shiva, then reconsider their decision and give positive cooperation to the committee in conducting the procession.

There is a possibility of a huge crowd of devotees in Baba’s temple on Mahashivratri. That’s why concrete arrangements have been made for the security system. More than 2200 policemen have been deputed from midnight on 17th February till the morning of 19th February to control the crowd and let them offer Jal on Lord Shiva easily. Apart from this, more than 250 police officers, 1,600 male lathi-wielded personnel and about 200 female lathi-wielded personnel will be deployed. The NDRF team will also be ready around the Sivaganga campus.

aIn order to improve the traffic system, instructions have been given to the officers and policemen to be vigilant. The duty of 100 additional jawans has been imposed. DSP level police officers will be posted from Shivram Jha Chowk to B.Ed College. On this occasion, Sub-Divisional Officer Dipankar Chaudhary and Sadar SDPO Pawan Kumar will be in charge of the entire law and order.

On the other hand, All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU) District President of Deoghar, Adarsh Lakshya, has termed the imposition of Section 144 in Deoghar subdivision area as inappropriate on the day of Shivratri. It has been said that people from all blocks and other districts and other states also come to offer prayers and watch the Shiva procession. In such a situation, it is not justified to impose Section 144 in the religious place. Adarsh has urged to withdraw this order and reduce the rate of Shighradarshanam Coupon from Rs.500 to Rs.250.
