Mumbai, Jul 8 (UNI) City civil and sessions court today allowed the trustees of Dargah of Makdoom Ali Mahimi, popularly known as 'Mahim Dargah', to install a security gate to protect the shrine from possible terror attacks.

The trustees had earlier been refused permission by the local residents over the security gate, but they went to court, which agreed with the trustees contention and gave the go ahead to install the gate.

The trustees of the over 350-year-old dargah, one of the most visited religious landmarks of the city, filed an application in court, saying that lack of security around the dargah is a matter of concern.

While passing the order, civil Judge A S Tamboli allowed the trust to take all possible security measure for the shrine and also provide identity cards for local residents for their smooth entry and exit.

The court, however, turned down the trust's plea to call for a police report in this regard and then pass an order.

Judge Tamboli observed that it is good that the trust is taking this precautionary measure and hence there is no need to call for a police report.
