New Delhi, Sep 30 (UNI) Defence Minister A K Antony has directed his ministry to ''urgently'' look into the demand for posting the Coast Guard around the Ram Sethu in Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu.

The demand was raised by Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy, who wanted posting of the Coast Guard around the Ram Sethu to protect it against ''any possible damage from miscreants like the LTTE''.

Dr Swamy had written a letter to Mr Antony highlighting the demand on September 18.

''I have directed my ministry to look into the matter urgently,'' Mr Antony said in his reply on September 20.
