Thiruvananthapuram: The capital city is set to become a high-security zone during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit on Tuesday. The railway station, central stadium and the city itself will be subject to increased security measures. A meeting of station house officers convened under the city police commissioner on Saturday discussed the security arrangements.

It was decided at the meeting that public parking would be prohibited along the route that the PM's convoy will take. Traffic will also be restricted completely in this area. KSRTC buses will not be permitted to enter or exit from the Thampanoor bus stand for several hours before the PM's arrival. The depot will be closed from 8 am to 11 am, and the shops in the complex will also remain closed until 11 am.

The parking area of the bus stand will be cleared out the day before, and KSRTC bus services will start from Vikas Bhavan. Auto rickshaws may also be removed from the Thampanoor region.

On the day of the visit, passengers will only be allowed to enter the first and second platforms of the Thiruvananthapuram railway station, and the sale of tickets may be regulated.

These strict security measures were implemented based on intelligence reports that revealed potential threats to the PM's safety during his visit to Kerala.

The final guidelines on the security arrangements will be released on Monday.
