Ram Mandir, after the consecration ceremony of Lord Ram’s idol, witnessed a notable surge in the gathering of devotees. The police administration had anticipated security and management challenges for several days leading up to the event, and on Tuesday, their preparations were put to the test as the influx of devotees increased.

Prashant Kumar reassured that the situation in Ayodhya remained entirely normal, and the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) was on alert to prevent any untoward incidents.

Challenges and Precautions

The unexpected surge of devotees in Ayodhya, where ongoing events related to Ram Katha have been drawing crowds, prompted the activation of the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) to ensure security. Devotees from outside Ayodhya also joined the celebrations, adding to the already significant gathering. Prashant Kumar clarified that the situation was entirely under control.

The police administration has been vigilant against suspicious elements and miscreants, maintaining a high alert across all districts. Instructions were given to closely monitor any mischievous activities and swiftly address them to maintain law and order.

Devotee Count and Security Measures

On the first day, until late afternoon, around three lakh devotees had visited for darshan. By late evening, the number rose to approximately five lakh devotees who were facilitated for a peaceful darshan of Lord Ram. The police, in coordination with local authorities, managed the flow of the crowd efficiently, implementing the necessary security measures.

The ATS team remains active, ensuring that any potential security threats are addressed promptly. The police administration’s proactive stance and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s personal inspection have played crucial roles in maintaining order and facilitating a harmonious experience for the devotees during this significant religious event.

As the events unfold, the police will continue to be on high alert, adapting to the evolving situation to ensure the safety and well-being of all devotees participating in this sacred occasion.
