Security stepped up at Tirumala

Special Correspondent

TIRUPATI: The abortive militant attack on Tuesday on the Ayodhya temple complex had its echo in Tirupati and Tirumala. The TTD's security and Vigilance wing and the police swung into action and threw a security blanket around the Tirumala temple complex.

The temple has been under a security blanket since the terrorist attack on Parliament and the Aksharadham temple.

Senior TTD and security officials reviewed the security arrangements at Tirumala and also in other TTD temples in and around Tirupati. Security was tightened at the temple at Srikalahasti, 35 km from here.
