Cauvery issue: Security beefed up at KRS dam

 With the possibilities of Supreme Court giving a verdict on the ongoing Cauvery river water sharing issue on Monday, security has been beefed up at the Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) dam and the surrounding areas as a preventive measure. IGP (Southern Range) B K Singh inspected the premises on Sunday.

He supervised the security arrangements at the entrance to the Brindavan Gardens, North Gate, Cauvery statue and other places.

Speaking to mediapersons, Singh said that security arrangements have been strengthened in view of the Supreme Court hearing on Monday.

 In case the verdict goes against the state, it might trigger protests and hence the measures, he said. 

Additional Superintendent of Police of Mysuru district Kala Krishnaswamy was also present.

Earlier, Mandya Superintendent of Police Sudhir Kumar Reddy inspected the premises. He also held discussions with the local officials on the steps required to be taken if the Court orders release of water from KRS dam.
