Agra: After inputs of terror threat on one of the most beautiful monuments of the world, Taj Mahal, Indian intelligence agencies have recommended tightening of security of the entrances. Closing of tourists’ entry from south gate has also been suggested.
The three gates at the monument have been sealed temporarily while other gates will be sealed at night.
Delhi and other surrounding areas have received many threats in the past. Recently, a terror alert was also seen in the national capital, New Delhi. Now it is mulled that Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world, is also under some sort of terror threat.
Meanwhile all political parties in unison said that the terror threat needs to be taken very seriously.
“No Indian would want to do it. It must be some foreign force and the monument should be protected,” said BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.
Taj Mahal is the only monument in India which has three gates for general public. But for now, only one gate will allow entry in order to ensure better security.
