Security strengthened at Mullaperiyar

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Security at the Mullapperiyar dam site has been strengthened to avert any possible attack by extremists or saboteurs, Water Resources Minister N.K. Premachandran told the Assembly on Monday.

Responding to a calling attention motion from Roshy Augustine (KC-M), the Water Resources Minister said the government had conducted a security audit of all the 33 dams under the Water Resources Department following an alert from the Centre and placed the Mullapperiyar dam in the �A category requiring the highest security cover. A police team with the necessary communication facilities was giving round-the-clock security cover to the dam and steps were being taken to prevent entry of miscreants into the dam site
