Hyderabad Police Commissioner A.K. Khan on Saturday said more policewomen would be deployed to oversee security arrangements and regulation of devotees for the ensuring Ujjain Mahankali Bonalu.

Several local public representatives from Secunderabad appealed to the Commissioner to post more policewomen for the Bonalu celebrations keeping in view the large number of women devotees thronging the Mahankali temple. Mr. Khan was interacting with the GHMC corporators, ex-corporators, local leaders and representatives of voluntary organisations at a meeting organised by the local police on the arrangements to be made for Mahankali Bonalu.

Assuring that more policewomen would be deployed for the coming Bonalu festival compared to the previous one, Mr. Khan observed that restrictions from security point of view when VVIPs visit the temple would be inevitable. “Ensure all devotees are treated equally at the temple for darshan,” he suggested to Bonalu organisers remarking that Bonalu has not only religious significance but also reflects rich cultural heritage. Bansilalpet corporator Devanand appealed to civic authorities to get the sewerage and drainage lines in the locality cleaned. “If it rains before or during celebrations, the overflowing drainage lines would cause inconvenience to everyone,” he said.
