Phulbani: Security arrangements have been tightened in Odisha’s Kandhamal district today in view of Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati’s 9th death anniversary in a bid to avoid any untoward incident.

Worth mentioning, the Hindu monk and his four disciples were murdered on August 23, 2008, by Maoists on the occasion of Janmashtami which was followed by a riot.

In view of Janmashtami celebrations and observance of the death anniversary at ashrams in Jalespeta and Chakapada, three-layer security arrangements have been made there.

Besides, as many as seven platoons of police forces have been deployed across the district.
