In their effort to provide maximum security in the run-up to his visit on Friday, they have removed coconuts which may fall on his head from trees. All coconuts around the city’s Mahatma Gandhi museum have now been cut down, an official told the BBC. Every year in India people are injured or even killed by falling coconuts. Heavy security arrangements and preparations are going on in the city which also celebrates the religious festival of lights, Diwali, during the president’s visit. Last week American security officers inspected the places the president is likely to visit.
