“To avoid untoward incidents, police officials from other States will be roped in. All the lodges in the City will be asked to keep an eye on tourists. Tight security will be in place at the Mysuru Railway and KSRTC Bus Stations. The rowdy elements have been warned not to take the law into their hands,” he added.

Some organisations have planned to celebrate Mahisha Dasara atop Chamundi Hills on Sunday but the police have refused to permit them to go ahead with their plan.

The statue of Mahisha has been barricaded and completely covered with a cloth. In addition, the tourists entering Chamundi Hills are being frisked before being let in.
