Cuttack:30/9/20: Odisha High Court on Wednesday deferred the hearing of the petition on restricting the height of idols in community pandals during the upcoming Durga Puja in Cuttack till October 9.

The court has directed the state government to present their case on the next hearing date. Odisha government has also been directed to give protection to the under-construction idols in the pandals.

According to the directives of the court, after convening a meeting on September 17, Police Commissioner Sudhansu Sarangi had said that the height of idols in Durga Puja pandals should not exceed four feet as per the guidelines issued by Odisha Government.
