PAMPA: Pilgrims moving the Sabarimala hilltop to watch Makara Jyothi on January 14 may be restricted.To decide on this, a team of officials led by additional district magistrate (ADM) Premkumar inspected the area on Wednesday.They reached Pampa at 11 am, and the inspection lasted at one hour. Scientists from geology department, forest and District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) officials were part of the team. 
They will report to the Pathanamthitta district collector.

They said their preliminary view is that the hill has turned weak due to the impact of the flood and so allowing pilgrims in large numbers will be a risk.
K. Sanjay Kumar Gurudin, special officer, Pampa, said that the police would impose restrictions on pilgrims.

 

"A final decision will be after getting a report from DDMA," he told reporters.

Earlier in August National Disaster Management Authority had warned of landslides on the trekking path. Usually, during Makaravilakku days, thousands of pilgrims go there to see Makara Jyothi at Ponnambalamedu.
