Kerala on Tuesday created a new post of the rank of a superintendent of police to specifically protect the treasure estimated at Rs.1 lakh crore found in the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple here.
"We are looking into various measures on the state-of-the-art security arrangements that should be put up in the temple premises," Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told reporters after the weekly cabinet meeting here.
The state government has posted a round-the-clock security ring around the temple since a treasure was found in five of its six chambers.
The Supreme Court last week appointed a five-member committee headed by Director General of National Museum C.V. Ananda Bose to videograph and photograph the articles found in vault A of the temple. Another three-member committee, to be headed by Justice M.N. Krishnan, was set up to oversee the operations of the experts committee.
