Security will be strengthened in Anuradhapura and Mihintale during the Poson season to protect the large number of devotees.
Over 4500 police, Army and civil security force officers will be deployed for the purpose.
A special traffic plan will be implemented in both cities.
We contacted North Central province DIG Kithsiri Dayananda to obtain further details regarding security in the Anuradhapura region.
He also requested from the devotees not to pollute the environment and follow the instructions given by the police.
