Press Trust of India  |  Bhopal 

Security has been beefed up in Madhya Pradesh ahead of the Supreme Court verdict on the sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid suit on Saturday, officials said.

As many as 32 additional companies of the police are being deployed across the state.

"Security has been beefed up in view of the SC judgement by deploying 32 additional companies of the police," a police officer said on Saturday.

Prohibitory orders were enforced across the state to ensure peace, an official said.

An order was recently issued by the state police headquarters prohibiting police officials and employees from going on leave from November 1 onwards.

A five-judge constitution bench, headed by the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, is set to deliver the verdict in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute on Saturday.
