india Updated: Nov 02, 2010 14:29 IST

Security at the temple of the fifteenth century saint Baba Ramdev in Jaisalmer has been tightened after an anonymous letter threatening to blow it upon November 9 was received, police said on Tuesday.

"The letter was delivered to the office of District Collector G S Kushwaha by ordinary post on October 27, following which we tightened security in and around the temple," Superintendent of Police S Parimala said.

"The letter states that the Ayodhya verdict was not justified hence a bomb will be exploded at the Ramdev temple on November 9," the SP said, adding, efforts were on to trace the sender.

Around 50 lakh devotees from all over the country visit the temple every year.
