Only essential services will be allowed for the duration of the ‘corona curfew’, soon after the last ‘Shahi Snan’ of the Kumbh Mela was over.
On Tuesday, the last ‘shahi snan’ at Haridwar’s Kumbh Mela was a subdued affair with seers keeping the ritual ‘symbolic’ in view of a nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases.
Till the conclusion of the royal bath, nearly 2,000 seers of 13 ‘akhadas’ took a dip in the Ganga at Har Ki Pairi ghat which was reserved for them, PTI reported.
