The security staff of an ancient Shiva temple in Pakistan have been accused of stopping devotees from performing religious rituals.

Two members of the Hindu community in northwestern Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province have filed a complaint against the security staff of the temple for not allowing the worshippers to carry out religious rituals in there, according to a news agency PTI report.

Sham Lal and Sajin Lal on Saturday had filed the complaint against the security staff of the temple in Mansehra district's in Gandhian area.

In their complaint, Sham and Sajin said, "stopping the worshippers from religious rituals in mandir (temple) is against the law of the land".

The duo had urged Deputy Inspector General of Police, Hazara division to intervene in the matter and resolve the issue so that devotees can carry out religious rituals in the temple.

Senator Gurdeep Singh of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, member of provisional assembly Ravi Kumar and SHO of Baffa Police Station have been made party in the complaint.
