Police boosts security near Mosques and Madrassas in the Muslim areas

Pune: As the Muslims are gearing up to celebrate Eid-ul-Zuha on August 22, an elaborate security is provided of 59 mosques and 22 madrassas in the Muslim-dominated area in Pune.

This came after the Maharashtra Anti Terror Squad (ATS) has recovered eight country-made bombs and other explosives from the house of Sanathan Sanstha worker Vaibhav Raut which were supposed to be used during the Eid-ul-Zuha to spoil the atmosphere in the country.

Instructions have been given to all mosques and madrassas by police to install CCTV cameras, appoint volunteers for managing crowd during Eid, check visitors’ bags, set up metal detector doors and be alert about abandoned vehicles and articles.
