Idukki: Prohibitory orders were enforced
in Kumali town on Kerala-Tamil Nadu border on Monday night following
stray incidents of stoning vehicles.

According to police sources, Section 144 of IPC, which
prohibits amassing of people, was clamped in the town in view
of people gathering as part of the Mullaperiyar dam campaign.

The situation was normal in the area, the sources said.

The Mullaperiyar dam dispute has escalated following
Kerala`s push for the construction of a new dam in place of
the existing 116-year-old reservoir and Tamil Nadu`s
opposition to the proposal.
