RAF to be deployed at Sabarimala

Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Security would be tightened at Sabarimala during the Mandalam and Makaravilakku festivals, Kerala Minister for Home and Tourism Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has said.

After addressing a joint meeting of the Home and Devaswom departments here on Wednesday, Mr. Balakrishnan said a company of the Rapid Action Force would be deployed at Sabarimala. A 3,000-strong police force too would be on duty during the festival season.

As many as 500 policemen who went for duty to Sabarimala last year had to return owing to lack of basic facilities. All arrangements had been made to avoid a similar situation this year.
