Tirupati: The TTD Vigilance and Security personnel on Sunday night seized four hookah pots at Tirumala from a group of 10 devotees hailing from New Delhi. The incident demonstrated how people could easily get prohibited material past the checks at the Alipiri toll gate. The consumption of tobacco and alcohol is banned in Tirumala.

The TTD vigilance and security officer, Tirumala,  M. Manohar, said the group had come to the temple late on Saturday. “They boarded a bus in Tirupati in which they carried the hookah pots. They rented a room at SNC 315A, a TTD guesthouse, in which they consumed the hookah.”

 

When the team received a tip-off that someone was using tobacco in the room, the sleuths rushed to the room and took them into custody.
