TIRUCHY: Security measures have been further tightened at all vulnerable places across the central districts of Tiruchy, Karur, Perambalur, Ariyalur, Pudukkottai, Thanjavur, Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam districts, following  the J and K related political developments in the national capital and in the Kashmir valley.

The effort is also to ensure maintenance of the law and order in the state, said highly places sources in the police department.

 

The sources told DC that they have identified 109 places that are vulnerable in the central districts of Tamil Nadu and armed police have been posted in these areas on round-the-clock basis.

Adequate police bandobast is provided at all the places of worships of all religions and important temples. This apart, security has also been provided at the residences and offices of various religious leaders and religious organisations, sources said.

The Tamil Nadu Government has appointed Shileskumar Yadav, additional DGP as nodal officer for the central districts, to monitor the security arrangements. Police also intensified their security drill at Tiruchy Airport and railway junction to avoid any untoward incident.

 

Meanwhile, police registered a case against a few BJP and Hindu Munnani volunteers for bursting crackers and distributed sweets to passersby at the Central Bus stand and Chinthamani areas in the city without police permission on Monday.

Police have also taken into the custody of a group of Tamilaga Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam volunteers when they attempted to lay siege to the railway junction here last night in protest against the Union Government’s action withdrawing the special status to the Jammu and Kashmir, and also bifurcating J and K into two union territories.

 

However, all those arrested were later released, police added.

SECURITY UP FOR KARUR COURTS:
Meanwhile, security measures have been beefed up in the entire integrated court complex since last night here, following an anonymous caller informing the court authorities on Monday evening that bombs would go off in a day or two and the Principal District and sessions judge also received a similar threat letter.

The court authorities alerted the police; immediately, police swung into action with the anti-bomb squad and sniffer dogs since last night made thorough checks.

 

 This morning, the bomb detection squad personnel conducted checked all the court staff and people were allowed after frisking, police said, adding, nothing incriminating has been found so far.
