Muharram: Special control room in Kanpur from tomorrow.
It will be in service round-the-clock. Both police and district administration will be on alert during this period, he said, adding that videography of all the Muharram processions will also be done.

The biggest concern for the police is managing about 2 lakh devotees, who will hit the road bare footed during the muharram procession, Sharma added.

To ensure that the procession is taken out smoothly, we have requested their head Khalifa to give identity cards to the devotees and submit a list of their names to the district administration, he added.
