Cuttack: The Odisha government on Thursday sought more time for filing a detailed report in the Orissa High Court on a petition objecting to acquisition of land belonging to Shailabala Women’s Autonomous College for the Maa Cuttack Chandi Temple Redevelopment Project.

The HC set the next hearing of the case on July 19.

The state government plans to use a part of the playground of the college for the temple beautification project.
