Shops had not opened yet. People were seen in their balconies performing their morning ablutions. It was just 6 am, but the presence of security power, even then, was overwhelming.
Armed with bullet proof vests, helmets, AK-47s, knee pads and helmets, policemen and paramilitary force personnel were seen either manning roads in groups of five or six or squatting outside unopened tea shops.

HC rules spot under the dome is Ram Janmasthan
The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday decided by majority that the land under the central dome of the demolished Babri Masjid is the Ram Janmasthan. While delivering its verdict in the contentious 60-year-old Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit case the three-judge special bench comprising of Justice Sibghat Ullah Khan, Justice Sudhir Agrawal and Justice Dharam Veer Sharma ruled that the 2.77 acres of land be divided into three parts - one-third to the party representing 'Ram Lala Virajman', one-third to Sunni Wakf Board and one-third to Nirmohi Akhara.
The High Court also dismissed the title suits of Sunni Wakf Board and Nirmohi Akhara and declared them to be time barred. The court also ruled that status quo be maintained for three months at the site in Ayodhya.
