EPPING - Pandit Ramadheen Ramsamooj was working in his office yesterday while other members of his Hindu temple were praying when sheriff deputies arrived at the door. "This is a very sad day," lamented Ramsamooj, the spiritual leader of Saraswati Mandiram, as he sat in his van to keep warm shortly after being kicked off the temple property.

With the eviction notice in hand, Ramsamooj parked his van at the end of the driveway and watched as police and a locksmith moved in.
