Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath has directed all civil and police officials to ensure adequate security measures ahead of the Babri mosque demolition anniversary on 6 December.

CM Yogi, who reviewed the security arrangements, said that all security arrangements will remain in place till 15 December. According to an official statement, the CM emphasized on regular foot patrolling, UP-112 patrolling and having regular interaction with peace committees and religious leaders.
CM Yogi has also underlined the need for having CCTV cameras at religious places, commercial and industrial establishments, ATMs and banks and other vital installations.
