Prohibitory orders clamped at Sabarimala

With the Lord Ayyappa shrine at Sabarimala all set to open for a day's 'pooja' on Monday, prohibitory orders were clamped at the foothills Pamba and other areas to prevent any untoward incidents.

Sabarimala will be under heavy security cover in the backdrop of the violent protests witnessed last month against entry of women in the 'barred' age group.

Prohibitory orders under section 144 CrPC banning assembly of four or more people would be clamped at Sabarimala, Pamba, Nilackal and Elavumkal, according to police sources.
