UP govt to erect boundary walls around religious places
Uttar Pradesh government has decided to erect boundary walls around important religious places following intelligence inputs that terrorists, dressed a 'sadhus' (sage) could launch attacks on such places in the state.

The directives were given by chief minister Yogi Adityanath at a meeting with the officials of the religious endowment department here on Wednesday night.

Adityanath also directed the officials to construct four lane approach roads to all important religious places and provide better facilities to the pilgrims at these places.
 
An alert had been sounded across UP and security had been beefed up at all important religious and public places after intelligence agencies warned that terrorists, dressed as 'sadhus' (sage) could launch attacks in the state at religious places.

Sources said that the MP police, in a letter to their UP counterpart, had said that over a dozen ISI-trained terrorists, dressed as 'sadhus' planned to attack important religious places in the state.
