GEORGE TOWN: Despite a nagging fear of foreseeing some problem due to the two chariot issue, police and temple authorities sighed a relief when the thousands of devotees and tourists took part in the Thaipusam festival in a peaceful manner.
More than 50,000 devotees and tourists seen on the grounds of the Arulmigu Sri Ganesha temple and Nattukottai Chettiar Temple, both in Jalan Kebun Bunga since morning and at press time, more people were seen thronging to these temples to fulfil their vows, do offerings and prayers.
The festivity itself drew Malaysians of all walks of life to visit the temples and witness the festivity including worshippers having their bodies pierced with hooks and spears as an act of penance and many fullfilling their vows by carrying Paal Kudam (milk pots).
Penang police chief Datuk Wira Chuah Ghee Lye said thousands of people were seen along Jalan Utama, Jalan Kebun Bunga and Jalan Ayer Terjun.
He said the situation was under control as policemen were stationed at strategic locations to monitor the crowd and enforce law and order.
" I would like to say that this year's celebration went on smoothly with no untoward incidences", he said after visiting the police's "Thaneer Panthal" (refreshment stall) and a walkabout at Jalan Utama .
Accompanying him were state CID chief SAC Zainol Samah, Northeast district police chief ACP Mior Faridalatrash Wahid and several others police officers.
The officers also took the opportunity to interact with the crowd and distribute goodie bags.
Chuah said 1,100 personnel from PDRM and RELA were assigned for duty throughout the three days festival.
He advised those coming for the festival including over the weekend to take care of their children and also their personal belongings.
