The Chief Incumbent of the Mahabodhi's Budda-gaya Centre Venerable Hakurugammana Saddhathissa Thero states that the public should not have any undue fear concerning the safety of pilgrims who are visiting the area.

Speaking to our news team the Venerable Thero noted that a request had been submitted to the authorities requesting for the deployment of additional security force personal to the Mahabodhi Society area.

Indian security officials decided to heighten the security of the Sri Maha Bodhi Vihara located adjacent to the Budda-gaya, subsequent to revelations coming to light that armed groups had drawn plans to execute an attack on the site.

Three suspects linked to an armed group had confessed their plans to carry out an attack on the site upon arrest by Indian security officials.
