AHMEDABAD: Gurukul was tense on Saturday as Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation officials along with police personnel arrived and demolished the extension of the Chamunda temple, which lies in the middle of the road. But initially people had prevented the AMC team from carrying out the demolition.
The AMC said that it had received complaints that the temple caused traffic jams in the area.
In September 2009, the apex court had ruled that no unauthorized construction shall be permitted in the name of a temple, church, mosque or a gurudwara on public streets or parks. As for religious structures that had already been constructed without authorization, the court said that state administrations should review them on a case-to-case basis and take appropriate action.
