UDHAGAMANDALAM: Nilgiris District SP Murali Ramba today said there was no link between police security being strengthened at the Poes Garden residence of late Jayalalithaa and routine checking at her Kodanadu estate near here.
Replying to a specific question on continued checking in the estate area, Ramba told reporters that the same check post and number of police personnel are on duty at the Kodanadu Estate entrance after the murder of a security guard some four months ago.
"There is no link between beefed up police security in Poes Garden (at Chennai) and routine checking in Kodanadu," he clarified.
Asked about reports of additional cameras being installed in the estate, Ramba said there was no such installation from the police side.
Police had installed some cameras after the murder of the guard and also alleged suicide of a staff two months ago, the official said.
Security was strengthened yesterday at Jayalalithaa's Veda Nilayam residence at Poes Garden a day after chief minister K Palaniswami announced that it would be converted into a memorial.
