Printing Ibrahim’s name on Puttur temple invitation card was a mistake, govt admits in HC

The state government, on Wednesday, admitted before the Karnataka High Court that it was a mistake to print the name of A.B. Ibrahim, Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district, on the invitation card for a car festival of the Puttur temple.

The following this submission from the State Advocate-General, the Court directed the government to print some additional invitation cards sans Mr. Ibrahim’s name.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice Ravi Malimath passed the order on PIL filed by a group of devotees of Puttur Mahalingeshwara temple.
