The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) will not hesitate in providing ‘chain link' fencing along the 10-km footpath leading to Tirumala.
TTD chairman D.K. Adikesavulu told journalists that Tuesday's incident, in which a panther attacked a three-year-old girl on the Tirumala footpath, was unfortunate.
Several thousands of devotees trek the footpath everyday to go to the hilltop.
As a preliminary step, the TTD management will strengthen the much-needed ‘vigil' for devotees of Lord Venkateswara.
