Vijayawada, Aug 25 (UNI) Two priests, officiating in the Nataraja Swami temple atop Indrakeeladri hill here, were suspended today by the Kanakadurga temple Executive Officer (EO) for dereliction of duties.

Temple sources told UNI that the EO T Chandra Kumar while conducting surprise checks, found Sankaramanchi Siva Prasad and Viparthy Appala Narasimha Murthy were not present in the Nataraja temple and instead their substitutes were performing the pujas.

Mr Kumar, considering their absence very seriously, passed orders for their suspension, the sources added.
