Security has been tightened in Kerala in view of the two-day visit of President A P J Abdul Kalam from December 19, with about 7,000 police personnel being deployed for security.

A high-level meeting of top police officials chaired by DGP Ramon Sreevastava was held here today and discussed the security arrangements during Kalam's visit.

In Kochi, where Kalam will attend two functions, at least 1,500 police personnel have been deployed, DIG Revada Chandrasekhar told PTI.

The President is scheduled to attend various functions at Thrissur, Chalakkudi and Kollam before he leaves for Delhi on December 20.

The Coast Guard and police patrol boats will be keeping the coastal structures near Kochi under surveillance.
