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.
The Gur had assured them that the Devi, which
was only, a round stone, had come out of water and would remain satisfied in water. The
temple was submerged in due course along with the Deity.
