Ooty: Security has been beefed up in the hills as Ooty is gearing up for the five-day annual flower show which begins from Friday, to be inaugurated by Governor of Tamil Nadu, Banwarilal Purohit.

Though around thousand policemen even from neighbouring districts have landed in the hills for security arrangements and traffic management duties, police administration in the Nilgiris has pressed into service helicoms and drones, at some points for strict vigilance, surveillance and monitoring.
