Kerala Police Chief Anil Kant will visit Pampa in Pathanamthitta district on Wednesday to assess the security arrangements ahead of the Sabarimala pilgrimage.
The two-month-long annual Mandalam-Makaravilakku pilgrimage season would begin on November 17. Kant would be inspecting the security arrangements made by police at Pampa in connection with the Sabarimala pilgrimage on November 9, a release issued by the State Police Media Centre on Tuesday said.
Unlike the last two years, when the number of pilgrims were limited due to the COVID-19 related restrictions, this year there could be a huge influx of devotees as the pandemic has been contained.
Kant would also hold a meeting of senior police officials at Pampa to review the security arrangements, the release said.
