The Coimbatore Rural Police carried out an intensive patrolling of railway lines in order to prevent any sabotage.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (Coimbatore Range) B. Balanagadevi and Superintendent of Police (Coimbatore Rural) N. Kannan and railway officials went on a trolley on the line from Coimbatore Junction to Somanur to supervise the patrolling.

Mr. Kannan said the patrolling on trolley would be done every day. Vehicle checks would be conducted at all entry points to Coimbatore in the rural police limits and about 900 police personnel from other districts in the west zone would be deployed here, he said.
