Accompanied by Tiruvur Revenue Divisional Officer K. Madhavi, Assistant Commissioner of Police Murali Mohan and others, the officials enquired about the security and vehicle checks between the two States.

Mr. Dilli Rao, who is also the District Election Officer (DEO), and Mr. Kranthi Rana interacted with the Central force and the police officers posted at the check posts.
