As the countdown for the Supreme Court verdict begins, the law enforcing agencies in Uttar Pradesh are also getting battle-ready.
Police vehicles are being repaired, the armoury is being revisited to ensure that there are no last-minute glitches and even the public address system is being tested.
“It is important for us that vehicles and the public address system are in perfect order in places that are communally sensitive. This would not just help in countering rumours and also help in crowd control. Rumours and uncontrolled mobs can play havoc in a situation, where mass sentiment is involved,” said a senior police officer.
