Mumbai: At a cost of Rs 5 crore, within the coming two Months the Security at the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple premises will become more stringent now.

This is being done as the alleged masterminds of Pune's German Bakery blast recently made a Confession that apart from other places, the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple too was on their Hit List for an attack, for which they had carried out recce of the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple using fake names.

It has to be noted that a few months back itself, on getting secret intelligence reports regarding a terrorist attack in Shirdi, the Shirdi Sansthan had already got the Security tightened in and around the Temple premises.

The Shirdi Temple Trust:

1) Had raised the height of the Boundary walls in view of the terror threats and has also constructed Watch Towers.

2) Have made Seven emergency exits and installed 16 Cellphone jammers.

3) Have regular Security Drills and the local police conducts security checks too.

5) CCTV Cameras / Scanners have been installed all around the Temple premises. It can also detect explosives like TNT, RDX and other explosives, if anyone sneaks them inside the Temple.
