Security tight in San Thome, Marina zone

Police dot San Thome High Road and Kamaraj Salai today as security is put in place in the wake of agitations arising out of the death of a student who failed the NEET test and could not get medical college admission.

The security system fell into place as buzz went around that social media messages urged people to gather at the Marina beach to protest.

Since a security blanket is on around the Secretariat, traffic bound to the Mylapore side had to take diversions.

A few security posts were also seen on and off San Thome High Road but traffic was smooth.
