New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India on Thursday issued a temporary stay on a Kerala High Court order pertaining to the Oachira Parabrahma temple (Kollam) administration body. The apex court, in effect, issued a temporary stay on the ruling that ordered the formation of an administrative body.

The apex court’s intervention came in response to a plea filed by the former elected president and secretary of the previous administration who lost positions due to the High Court order. It also issued notice to the opposite party in the case.

The ruling is of the Supreme Court bench comprising judges Krishna Murari and Sanjay Kumar. While the Kerala High Court order was of the bench headed by judge AV Ramakrishna.

The counsel for the litigants argued that they can continue in the position until new office bearers assume the administration body position after the election. The counsel for the opposite party in response alleged that allowing the existing body to continue the administration will result in the misappropriation of temple funds. However, the bench disapproved of the argument and noted that god will see to it.

The court will take up the matter again after four weeks.
