The Kerala High Court will hear the bail pleas of 17 accused in the Suryanelli gang-rape case.
Mild tremors rocked parts of high
range Idukki district last evening, police said Thursday.
Citing safety concerns, Kerala has been insisting on building a new dam in place of the more than 116-year-old structure, a stand opposed by TN.
Technical experts are expected to arrive at Mullaperiyar this evening and inspect the 116-year-old Mullaperiyar Dam tomorrow.
Paramilitary forces have been given a free hand to deal with any person entering the Mullaperiyar dam area without proper authorisation.
The tremors were of low intensity measuring 2.7 on the Richter scale and were followed by two more brief spells, according to the officials.
Mild tremors were felt in Upputhara and Peerumedu taluk areas of Idukki district Friday, leaving cracks in some houses.
