Security has also beefed up in the adjacent district of Moradabad to avoid any law and order debacle.

"The security has been tightened in and adjoining districts of Moradabad in view of the proposed Jalabhishek and peace march by the political parties," IG Law and Order Amrendra Sengar told reporters.

About possibility of banning the programmes that could trigger tension in the area, Sengar said, “No decision has yet been taken by the administration in this regard.”

The BJP scheduled to organize its state-wide protests seeking registration of FIR against Moradabad SSP for allegedly targeting BJP workers in Kanth on July 4. Also, Congress’s state Unit has also planned to hold a 'peace march' in Kanth on the very same day.

Precautionary measures are being taken as communal clashes broke out on July 4 over the installation of loud speakers at the temple. Sixty two people were arrested in connection with the violence.
