Security has been tightened in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya ahead of the likely verdict of the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case this month. Pilgrims are presently flooding Ayodhya for the 14 Kosi Parikrama, and elaborate policing is also in place to facilitate the smooth conduct of the pilgrimage. Uttar Pradesh Police also held a flag march in Gorakhpur. The top court is likely to pronounce its verdict in the decade-old Ayodhya case before November 17.
