Shimla: The caretakers of the Bairing Nag Devta Temple in Sangla, Kinnaur district, Himachal Pradesh, have banned 12 families of the Regesui caste from entering the temple, according to a report.
The abominable action was taken after some members of the caste refused to carry the musical instruments (Nagaras) of the deity.
The members of the Regesui caste have been carrying the musical instruments of the deity on occasions, for ages now. However, they’ve decided now to get rid of the slavery, and refused to carry the instruments.
Some women members belonging to the caste, lead by one Shiv Kumari, have complained with the Sangla police station against the discrimination. According to Sangla police station incharge, ASI, Kumbh Das, the police is looking into the matter.
