Kochi: Ahead of prime minister Narendra Modi's visit to Kerala, 12 Congress leaders have been placed under preventive detention in Kochi. The move comes amid concerns of possible protests during the Prime Minister's visit.

Among those reportedly detained are KPCC secretary Thambi Subramaniam and DCC secretary Sreekumar. There are indications that more individuals may be taken into custody.

To ensure the prime minister's security, more than 2,000 police personnel have been deployed across various parts of the city. The PM is expected to arrive at Kochi's Naval Airport on Monday afternoon for a two-day visit. From there, he will proceed to Sacred Heart College, Thevara, in a roadshow.

On Tuesday, the PM is scheduled to flag off the Vande Bharat train at the Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station at 10:30 am, before dedicating (and laying the foundation stones) Rs 3,200 crore-worth development projects including the Kochi Water Metro at the Central Stadium.
