In two days since the Supreme Court delivered its much-awaited verdict on Ayodhya issue, the Uttar Pradesh police have arrested 77 people across the state for allegedly trying to instigate communal disharmony through social media posts.

Following the popular verdict which was pronounced on November 9, 2019, a total of 34 cases have been registered and 77 persons arrested so far in the state, said the state police.

"A total of 22 cases were registered and 40 persons arrested for allegedly trying to vitiate communal atmosphere through their posts on Sunday by the Police Department's social media monitoring wing," an official statement said in Lucknow.

Action has been taken against 8,275 posts including 4,563 posts on November 10, 2019.

These posts were put on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, the statement said.

The Supreme Court Bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi through its verdict has allotted the disputed site to Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, while directing the government to allot an alternate 5 acre land within Ayodhya to Sunni Waqf Board to build a mosque.

The court unanimously ordered setting up of a trust by the government that would eventually pave the way for construction of a temple in Ayodhya at the disputed site where a 16th century Babri Masjid was razed by a Hindu mob on December 6, 1992.

As per the court order, the Central government has to formulate a scheme under Ayodhya Act, 1993 within a period of 3 months and set up a trust and hand over the disputed site to it for construction of temple at the site.
