LUCKNOW, INDIA, October 18, 2001: Around 200 Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) activists, led by president Ashok Singhal, entered illegally into the sanctum sanctorum of Ram Janambhoomi in Ayodhya on Wednesday. They worshiped the small Rama icon place there, distributed blessed food and hoisted a saffron flag while the security personnel watched. Police later downplayed the symbolic incident. No arrests were made as local officials could not determine if any law had been broken.
