The centre has been set up at "112 headquarters", named after the emergency contact telephone number.

"In this centre, representatives of CRPF, RPF, BSF, SSB, ITBP, CISF and GRP are also present and it will work for 24 hours," Additional Director General, UP-112, Asim Aurn told media on Saturday.

Zone-wise desks have been made to monitor reports from media, social media and information from other sources," he said.

Depending on situation, additional forces will be rushed to places, if needed, the officer said.

The Supreme Court on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
