Sabarimala: Security has been strengthened at the Lord Ayyappa shrine here and nearby areas in view of the 20th anniversary of Babri-Masjid demolition on Thursday.

As part of the security steps, after closure of the sanctum sanctorum on Wednesday, pilgrims will not be allowed to proceed to the `Sopanam` (holy steps).

The entry to the Sopanam area will start only by 4 am tomorrow after the temple`s opening.

Pilgrims will not be allowed to open their `Irumudi` (sacred bundle) on the Sopanam premises.

Security personnel would check the ghee containers meant for `Neyyabhishekam` (ghee offering), if necessary through the scanner, police said.
