Security has been tightened at the Golden temple here in view of the 26th anniversary of Operation Bluestar on Sunday.

Policemen in plainclothes are also deputed outside the premises as a precautionary measure in view of expected presence of radical Sikh activists in the temple.

The Sikh bodies, including SGPC and Akal Takht, observe the anniversary of Operation Bluestar every year.

In June 1984, the Army had launched the operation to flush out militants who were hiding inside the Golden Temple.
