Gorakhpur: The poor security arrangements of the Gorakhnath temple have come as a shocker to many and raised concerns about the lives of pilgrims visiting there. Except Gorakhpur airport, there are several loopholes in security arrangements in many sensitive areas in Gorakhpur-Basti division.

The shocking revelations have been made by the Anti Terror Squad (ATS) in its security review report. Though, no ATS official is ready to talk officially on the poor security arrangements in the Gorakhnath temple, the squad has alerted the local administration about the security threat.

The ATS has identified eight locations in two divisions as sensitive areas. The ATS personnel reviewed the security arrangements there last week to prepare a roadmap to foil possible terror attack.

According to sources, the ATS in its security review found that security personnel deployed in the temple premises are far less than the required numbers. CCTVs were installed, but nobody was deployed to monitor it. Door frame metal detectors have been fitted at the entry gates but no security personal were stationed there.
 
It seems that the serial blasts at Mahabodhi temple have failed to awake the administration from deep slumber.
