Case registered for putting QR-code in Kedarnath-Badrinath
Case registered for putting QR-code in Kedarnath-Badrinath: An appeal was made to donate by installing a scanner, the temple committee said – immediately removed
QR codes were installed at many places in Kedarnath and Badrinath Dham, through which devotees were asked to donate. Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC) president Ajendra Ajay said that these scanners have not been installed by the committee. Shortly afterwards these QR code boards were removed.
The thugs had installed these scanners for digital payment on the very day of the opening of the doors. Some devotees have also made payments by scanning this QR code. We had appealed to the devotees not to donate by scanning the QR code.
The office bearers of the temple committee had earlier demanded an inquiry into the matter at their own level. Later on Sunday, a complaint was lodged at Kedarnath police post and Badrinath police station.
Uttarakhand DGP Ashok Kumar said that a case has been registered against unknown people based on the complaint filed by the temple committee.
The doors of Kedarnath Dham in Uttarakhand opened at 6.20 am on 25 April. Jagadguru Rawal Bhim Shankar Ling Shivacharya, the chief priest of the temple, opened the doors of the temple. The temple was decorated with 20 quintals of flowers. There was snowfall here for 72 hours before the doors of the temple opened. Thousands of pilgrims going to the temple were stopped from proceeding due to bad weather. Whereas, the doors of Badrinath were opened on 27 April.
