Visitors flock Athirappilly not knowing its closure
Athirappilly: Several visitors reached Athirappilly on Saturday without knowing that it has been closed due to the increasing Covid test positivity rate.
The permission to enter the tourist sites has been restricted since last Wednesday. Ignorant of this, hundreds of visitors from and outside the state arrived to view the waterfalls on a holiday.
All of them were stopped by the police at the check post near Vettilappara bridge. Thereby, many of them spent time in the vicinity of the bridge and also visited Ezhattumugham Nature Village before leaving the region.
