Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad
High Court would be declared a no-access zone tomorrow when it
delivers its verdict in the Ayodhya title suits.

"The HC has been sanitised and it would be a no-access
zone tomorrow as only authorised persons will be allowed to
enter the court premises," District Magistrate Anil Sagar told
newspersons here today.

He said only those lawyers, whose cases are listed, would
be allowed entry, besides senior advocates, government
counsels, standing counsels and the Advocate General.

"Barring them, entry of all persons will be banned,"
the DM said.

He said roads around the HC would be sealed and certain
traffic diversions will be in force.

"Normalcy will be maintained in the city and there is no
order for closure of schools, malls and markets," Sagar said
adding only those market having weekly closure tomorrow would
remain closed.

"To give information to the media about the court`s
verdict, a person authorised by the HC will brief at the
Collectorate. Parties related to the suits and their counsel
will also reach here to answer media queries," the DM said.

He appealed to the media to cooperate and not allow
rumours to spread.

"I appeal to the media to avoid rumour mongers as this
issue has nation-wide repercussions and any rumour may result
in reaction," he said.

He said mobile phones will not be allowed inside the
court number 21 which will deliver the verdict.

"Arrangements have been made under which once a person
enters the court, he or she will not be allowed to leave
until and unless the verdict is delivered. This arrangement
has been made to maintain order outside the court," he said.
