Members of Hindu community in the city's Rayerbazar area yesterday staged a demonstration protesting the grabbing of land belonging to a century-old temple in the area.

They alleged that a developer company occupied the Sree Sree Kali Mandir yesterday.

The demonstrators took out a procession from the temple and later formed a human chain in front of the National Press Club demanding that the government take steps to recover the temple land and take action against the developer.

Dhakeshwari National Temple general secretary Advocate Taposh Pal, organising secretary Advocate Kishore Mandal, treasurer Advocate Shamol Roy, Kali Mandir committee president Suhash Pal and general secretary Shamvunath Pal were present at the human chain programme.
