Kochi: A posse of nearly 1,500 police personnel were deployed across Ernakulam district as the thick security blanket and restrictions put in place as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit made the city come to a standstill on Monday evening.

The roads in the western parts of the city were cut off to commuters and motorists for at least an hour before the prime minister's arrival after attending a function at Thrissur while a slight drizzle made the matters worse for the public as well as the cops.

 

The security clampdown since Sunday night had forced many residents to remain indoors. Buses heading towards Vypeen and North Paravur didn't ply for nearly two hours till the cavalcade finally passed through the city around 8 pm. Earlier, Modi arrived at the Naval Base airport at 5 pm and flew to Thrissur in a helicopter.     

Youth Congress activists waved black flag in protest outside the airport and cops whisked them away.
