Kolkata: Delivering a big blow to Kolkata’s Deshopriyo Park durga puja, which is featuring the world’s largest Durga idol, Kolkata police on Sunday evening banned pandal hoppers from entering the Deshopriyo puja pandal citing fear of a stampede due to the overwhelming crowed flocking the venue.
Police officials said that the ban has been imposed as the organizers violated the norms prescribed by the High Court while constructing the pandal. Police also stated that no proper arrangement of crowed control has been placed by the organizers.
It is to be noted that overwhelming crowed flocked to Deshopriyo Park to see the giant 82 durga idol, claimed to be the largest in the world. The ban has dampened the spirit of the pandal hoppers.
