Instructions have been given to the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government and the Aukaf department to start the work immediately and submit a report on the progress of the work in two weeks. The Chief Justice said that those who have vandalized the temple should pay the damages in the construction of the temple.

In Terry village of Karak district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, some people vandalized the temple last Wednesday in protest against the expansion work and set it on fire. More than 350 people have been named in the FIR registered in connection with this incident.
