Ever since the attack of the Durga Mandir in Hauz Qazi in Delhi, security personnel had been deployed to prevent any further violence. Now, as reported by Jagran, the paramilitary forces and police would remain in the Lal Kuan area of Hauz Qazi for 8 months.
Reportedly, there was no reported violence since the attack on the temple. However, security forces would be deployed as a precautionary measure. This is to ensure that no further attacks would be carried out on the temple or any other violence does not take place.
According to the police, there were nearly 700 security personnel in Lal Kuan until the time when the idols were re-installed in the temple. Now the number of personnel has been reduced and presently two companies of the Paramilitary and the police are deployed in the area. This means that there are nearly 200 security personnel have been deployed 24/7.
The forces would be deployed in three shifts each of 8 hours. One SP and three inspectors would be on duty throughout the day. A police control room would also be available at any time of the day.
The Durga Mata Temple in Hauz Qazi was attacked by a Muslim mob on the night of June 30th. The mob had vandalized the idols that were installed in the temple. So far 17 people have been arrested in connection with the case.
A few days ago, Hindu organizations had come together to rebuild the Durga Mandir. Chants of Jai Shree Ram echoed the bylanes of Chandni Chowk. VHP leader Surendra Jain had said that Hindus will no longer be silent victims of ‘Jihad’.
