The Department of Buddhist Affairs has taken measures to appoint a committee to probe the conflict that recently arose at the Kataragama Devalaya.

Commissioner General, Nimal Kotawela said, the committee would produce a report on the matter after 45 days.

The Kataragama Devalaya shut down for a few hours following a dispute that arose between the caretakers of the Devalaya and the Basnayake Nilame of the Devalaya.
