Absorption of closeby lands and coconut estates as part of the camp premises has further alarmed the local residents.

Residents of Karuthappalam said that the camp has recently expanded include some of the pasture land used for cattle gracing.

Residents also complained that large bull-dozers are being deployed to build bunds and bunkers around the expanded perimeters of the camp.
