    New Delhi, Oct 10 (PTI)
    The Supreme Court Wednesday took note of the October 3 violence at Puri's Jagannath temple during a protest against the introduction of a queue system for devotees and said no policeman should enter the temple with weapons and shoes.

    Nine policemen were injured as violence broke out during a 12-hour bandh called by a socio-cultural organisation, protesting introduction of a queue system for devotees visiting the Jagannath Temple.

    The queue system was introduced on an experimental basis and a review would be done as locals and servitors opposed it, a temple official had said.
