In a bid to ensure "foolproof" security at the Taj Mahal in Agra and religious places in Ayodhya, Varanasi and Mathura, the Uttar Pradesh government today directed senior officials of the districts concerned to submit proposals within 15 days.
"Proposals for high-level security have been sought from officers in Ayodhya, Varanasi and Mathura for religious places and Agra officials have also been asked to give their proposal for the Taj Mahal within 15 days," Principal Secretary Debashish Panda said during a security review meeting here.
Panda said that advice of officers of CRPF and other units of Central government should be taken while preparing the security proposals.
Arrangements of modern control room, surveillance cell and CCTVs should also be made at these places to monitor activities of visitors, he said, adding CCTV recordings should be stored for a long time and for it an effective plan should be made.
