Agra, may 26: The Agra police has said that atleast four people have been reportedly arrested for offering ‘namaz’ at the mosque present on the premises of the Taj Mahal on Thursday.

Agra Superintendent of Police (SP) Vikas Kumar has informed the four accused who have been booked under section 153 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), include three individuals from Hyderabad and one from Azamgarh.

“Four people were arrested for offering namaz at the mosque in Taj Mahal premises. Three of them are from Hyderabad and one is from Azamgarh. They have been booked under section 153 of IPC. They have been presented in the court,” Kumar said.

Earlier in the month, the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court rejected the plea seeking to open 22 closed rooms in the Taj Mahal to ascertain the presence of the idols of Hindu deities.

The plea was filed by Rajneesh Singh, a BJP youth media in-charge, before the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court that sought the directions to the Archaeological Survey of India to probe the 22 closed doors in the Taj Mahal to ascertain the presence of the idols of Hindu deities.
