Mullaperiyar issue; cannot deploy CISF, says Centre to SC

MULLAPERIYAR_1153129fNew Delhi: The Centre has informed the Supreme Court that it could not deploy Central Industry Security Force (CISF) at the site of Mullaperiyar dam.

There is no need for CISF for the safety of Mullaperiyar dam, and force cannot be deployed at the dam site unless Kerala demands it, the Centre informed.

The Tamil Nadu had moved the Supreme Court in November last year seeking directions to the Centre to deploy CISF for the safety of Mullaperiyar Dam.

In March this year, Kerala government had filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court, which had stated that there was no need to post CISF personnel to protect the dam.
