The government has brought out a gazette notification, saying all categories of visitors will be charged the additional amount if they wish to enter the main mausoleum, which houses artistic replicas of the original graves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal (in the basement).
While the main assailant, Dheeraj Narang (24), a resident of Uttarakhand, was arrested along with Rubi and Gurmeet, both aged 23 and residents of Delhi, during the day, Abhay Singh and Hariom Singh were nabbed late on Saturday night while they were trying to escape to Barabanki.
Dinesh Singh, along with 10 others, had been booked for blocking the Sultanpur-Rae Bareli Highway and throwing traffic out of gear during a violent protest. The trial of the case is pending at a special court in Prayagraj.
Referring to Chief Minster Yogi Adityanath’s recent claim that Hanuman was a “Dalit”, she said the top leadership of the BJP has “stooped to such a level for votes that they are not even sparing the deities.”
Station House Officer (SHO) of City Kotwali police station Anil Kaparwan said, “We rushed to the Hanuman temple after being informed about trouble there and found workers of Valmiki Kranti Dal conducting rituals of the priest. They were taken out of the temple and later let off. No one was taken into custody.”
