After the attack on the Gorakhnath temple, the security of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been increased. Now CRPF has been deployed under the protection of the Chief Minister. Two platoons of CRPF have been deployed at the Chief Minister’s Lucknow residence and women personnel will also be deployed round the clock. It is believed that the government has taken this decision after the attack on the Gorakhnath temple.

The temple is under high security as it is frequently visited by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who is the chief seer.

Murtaza Abbasi had attacked two police constables with sharp weapons at a gate of the famous Gorakhnath temple and tried to enter the premises before they came under control on Sunday evening. After arresting Abbasi, UP police raided his residence in Gorakhpur and collected his laptop and a mobile phone, which contains videos related to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik and the (Pakistan spy agency) ISI.


A team from Uttar Pradesh ATS also traveled to Mumbai to collect more information about Abbasi, who lived in a node of the satellite city of Mumbai.


On Monday, the team of UP ATS visited the building (Millennium Tower) located at Sanpada near Vashi. The team found that the flat (mentioned in Abbasi’s Aadhaar card) was sold in 2013. Abbasi’s father, Munir Abbasi, has also bought another flat at Taj Heights Apartments in Sector 50 at Seawoods Darve in Navi Mumbai, he said. ATS team visited the flat with the help of NRI police station officials. It was learned that the Abbasi family had shifted to Gorakhpur in October 2020 and the flat was rented out to a Muslim Khan during the lockdown.

Police are also talking to people who knew Murtaza when he was staying at Sanpada node in Navi Mumbai. One case has been registered in Gorakhnath police station regarding attack on police, while another case has been registered for use of sharp weapons.
