Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan’s family priest Amit Pandey was beaten up by police at Vindhyavasini temple in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday.
According to a report by LiveHindustan, the clash between policemen and priests took place after the Chandauli district magistrate (DM) and his family arrived at the temple in Vindhyachal for ‘darshan’ and prayers amidst weekend lockdown.
Seeing the DM offering puja, the priests wanted to perform puja. Police officers who had escorted the DM obstructed the priests from going into the temple, and a scuffle ensued.
