The Gur (diviner) of the Devi gave out that he had a visitation and the temple should not be dismantled and that the Devi would resent any disturbance. The, plea was summarily rejected and some members of the Acquisition Cell of the Project entered the interior, of the temple. Some unseen force in the cell suddenly hit the intruders who fell down.

They felt stifled and came out gasping and streaming in perspiration. Everyone was aghast with apprehension. Immediately then the Gur got into a religious trance and blurted out that the men should not have desecrated the temple and theBaglamukhi Devi would only be appeased if a goat is sacrificed. The Sub Divisional Officer immediately bought a goat for Rs. 30/- and sacrificed. Then they could proceed to do their work.
