Police chief reviews security at Sabarimala
State Police Chief K.S. Balasubramanian has said that the possibility of operating KSRTC buses to Pulmedu from Kumily for the Makaravilakku festival will be explored in view of the heavy influx of pilgrims expected there to worship the Makarajyoti on January 14.
Mr. Balasubramanian said Pulmedu witnessed heavy rush on the previous Makaravilakku day. The police would ensure better security arrangements there this time.
Directions had been issued to block vehicular traffic only at places where the pilgrims could get food and water on Sabarimala roads, the police chief added.
