Panic prevailed in the Dedhsi Ka Pool area in Varanasi on Monday following the recovery of an unclaimed bag on the yellow security zone of highly sensitive Kashi Vishwanath-Gyanwapi complex.
Senior of Superintendent Police Ashutosh Pandey said some devotees spotted the bag in yellow zone—second most sensitive zone—of the three-tier security of the complex.
The matter was brought to the notice of the police, following which the area was cordoned off and the bag searched.
Some clothes and a bottle of Ganga Jal was found in the bag, Pandey added.
