Hyderabad, Sep 22 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today reviewed security arrangements for the immersion of Ganesh idols on September 25, in the Hussain Sagar, in the city.

The meeting with Home Minister K Jana Reddy, DGP M A Basith and other top officials follows last month's bomb blasts triggered by suspected HUJI activists and the arrest of one of the main suspects yesterday.
