Security agencies have alerted Uttar Pradesh Police against a possible terror attack on Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at Goraknath Temple in Gorakhpur by assailants disguised as journalists. The alert was issued about two months ago which has led to the local police making new identity cards of media persons along with their photographs on it. 

LIU was tipped by 'security agencies'

The Local Intelligence Unit (LIU) stated that they were tipped about the threat by 'security agencies'. Circle Officer Jagdish Singh told PTI that the LIU received oral information from security agencies about a possible attack on the Chief Minister by unwanted elements disguised as journalists. "So we took the list of journalists who cover chief minister's programs and are making identity cards with their photos. Many such identity cards have already been distributed among the media persons," he added.
