A high alert has been sounded in Ayodhya in view of reports that Pakistan-based terrorists organisations might blow up the makeshift Ram Janmabhhomi temple to avenge the victory of the BJP in Gujarat elections.

A high-power body of top police officials under the chairmanship of Additional Director General of Police (Security) RK Bhatia met Wednesday to review the situation.

Ayodhya has been handed over to the newly formed Special Security Force.

More Rapid Security Force and Provincial Armed Constabulary contingents have been rushed to Ayodhya.

There are reports that the ISI spies and Al-Qaeda terrorists could create disturbances in Ayodhya. Al Qaeda is the dreaded organisation of international terrorist Osama bin Laden, whose agents are said to have entered India from Bangladesh.

Principal Home Secretary Pradeep Kumar said that security has been beefed up in Ayodhya.

Director General of Police Radhey Mohan Shukla said information had already been collected about some terrorist modules and more information is likely.

The Sri Ram Janmabhhomi temple complex, specially the Garb Griha (sanctum sanctorum) has been sanitized from security point of view and is being heavily guarded.

Close circuit TVs have been installed. Apart from routine frisking and intensive metal detector checks, the authorities have banned vehicles near the temple at Ayodhya.
