Patna: A probe into RJD supremo Lalu Prasad`s visit to pray at a temple within the Sanjay Gandhi Zoological Park here last week with gun-totting securitymen in
tow, has revealed that the guards at the park did nothing to
stop them.

"The probe has revealed that the guards at the gate of
the zoo didn`t muster courage to stop securitymen accompanying
Prasad`s during his visit to the temple," Director of the Park
Abhay Kumar said today.

Kumar said the formal inquiry report would be received
in a week.

Stating that instructions have been issued to disallow
securitymen with arms to enter the zoo, he said "the rule has
to be adhered to."

Lalu`s visit to the zoo with his guards had sparked
controversy with the zoo authorities ordering a probe.
