Security to be stepped up for idol procession

Staff Reporter

PUDUCHERRY: The territorial police will step up security for the Vinayaka Chathurthi idol procession to be held here on September 15.

Addressing a meeting held with associations concerned, Superintendent of Police (North) N.T. Sivadasan said that all issues pertaining to the procession were discussed in detail and a plan was put in place for the event.

All idols from the Puducherry town would be immersed in the sea near the old port area with the help of special cranes.

People living in the outskirts and certain coastal villages could immerse idols in certain waterbodies near their places.

From September 11

Over 750 policemen would be deployed across the town from September 11 to ensure that no untoward incident took place in the areas where the idols were stationed.

Mr. Sivadasan said that the procession would begin from Avvai Thidal and end at the old port, moving through Botanical Gardens, Jawaharlal Nehru Street, Mahatma Gandhi Salai, Sardar Vallabhai Patel Salai and Beach Road.

He said that all officials concerned had been requested to be on alert as over 100 idols were expected to take part in the procession in the Puducherry town alone.
