Open vault ‘B’ of Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple: SC

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the vault ‘B’ of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple should be opened.

The bench, chaired by the Chief Justice, observed that the opening of the ‘B’ vault would not hurt any religious sentiments.

The court gave the directive while considering a plea regarding a recent incident where eight diamonds from the idol went missing.

“If the B vault remains closed, it will generate suspicions. The amicus curiae should convene a meeting of the members of the royal family and revert with their opinion”, the court stated.

The mysterious vault ‘B’ kept everyone at bay although five other vaults were opened in 2011 by a team mandated by the Supreme Court.

The stocktaking had unveiled a treasure trove worth more than Rs 1 lakh crore — in the form of jewellery, idols, weapons, utensils and coins.
