Puri Gajapati makes clear about fake news on the coronation of the new Puri king.

Puri: Photos of Puri Gajapati Maharaja Dibyasingh Deb with a young man and some in traditional costumes have gone viral, as the Gajapati Maharaja’s office on Thursday clarified that fake news was circulating on social media.
The picture which has gone viral, appears to be entirely in a youthful costume which includes Puri Gajapati Dibyasingh Deb and Dhenkanal king Kamakhya Prasad Singh Dev and his family.
In clarification, the office of the Puri King said, “This is a piece of fake news being circulated by some crazy person. The person in traditional attire is Tikayet Janmejay Mardaraj of Raj-Nilagiri, the only child of Nilagiri Raja who is on left.”
“This photo was taken at Nilagiri Palace on the occasion of Tilak (wedding engagement) ceremony of Janmejay in 2016 along with Gajapati Maharaj, Nilagiri King Jayant Chandra Mardaraj and Dhenkanal King KV Singh Deo and his wife,” office of the Puri King sources added.
