Puri: The Additional District Sessions court of Puri today delayed the hearing on the bail application of nine servitors, who were captured for making a ruckus amid the Niladri Bije custom of Lord Jagannath and his kin on July 17.

As per sources, the hearing on their bail application is currently planned to be taken up on August 6.

Twelve servitors have been arrested for the unsavoury incident on Niladri Bije night that saw servitors grappling with and assaulting media persons and Puri collector Arvind Agarwal. Out of six servitors arrested for misbehaving with the district collector, three have applied for bail.

The hearing was scheduled for August 2, which was later rescheduled for August 4th after Sinhadwar Police sought more time to submit the case diary in this connection.
