Security tightened in Mathura

Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya – where the under-construction Ram Temple is expected to be finished before the 2024 election – said he is not interested in the issue of Mathura temple which is part of the ruling BJP’s politics ahead of next year’s assembly elections.

The chief priest said his boundaries are till the Ram Lalla and currently is not looking at Mathura. Whether he goes to Kashi or Mathura, will decide after the construction of Ram Mandir. The Mathura temple is a matter of the BJPs politics not his, he told the NDTV.

Mathura, 400 km west of Lucknow, has slipped into a security tightrope after a few right-wing groups threatened to install an idol of Lord Krishna in the adjacent Shahi Idgah mosque on December 6, the anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition.

The Mathura police have put down three-tiered security ring around the Katra Keshav Dev area, where the temple rubs shoulders in a historic dispute with Shahi Idgah mosque.

The mosque is next to the Krishna Janmabhoomi and petitions in local courts claim it as part of the Janmabhoomi.

Section 144, which restricts the gathering of four or more people in any area, has been implemented in Mathura and Para-military forces have been deployed at different points from morning on December 5. The authorities have imposed traffic restrictions till December 7, with a complete suspension of any vehicle movement near the temple and the mosque area, SP traffic Harendra Kumar said.

Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shrikant Tyagi was booked on Saturday by the Noida Police for allegedly threatening a woman at the Grand Omax society in Noida.

A shocking video went viral on Friday where the woman can be heard saying the BJP leader used bad words for her, for her husband and even for her children. He pushed her and allegedly threatened her with dire consequences. The incident took place when the woman objected to the plantation of some trees by Shrikant Tyagi in her housing society.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Women Safety) Ankita Sharma Said that Shrikant Tyagi was booked under section 354 of the Indian Panel Code. The panel describes that whoever assaults or uses criminal force on any woman, intending to outrage or knowing it to be likely that he will thereby outrage her modesty shall be punished with imprisonment of two years, with a fine, or with both.

Some reports said that a team of local police visited the housing society in the evening but Tyagi didn’t open the door of his house.  He allegedly threatened police officials too.

Shrikant Tyagi claims himself as a national executive member of BJP’s Kisan Morcha and national co-coordinator of the Yuva Kisan Samiti. However, the BJP denied the claim of Shrikant Tyagi.

BJP MP and Kisan Morcha chief Rajkumar Chahar said that Shrikant Tyagi was not an executive member of the BJP’s farmer unit. There was no Yuva Committee of Kisan Morcha too. Chahar also demanded his punishment as per the law of the land.
