A marked police escort will be provided during the funeral of the late Satnarayan Maharaj.

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) in a statement late Monday confirmed it will be extending its courtesy to the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha, by providing the marked police escort for the funeral of the organisation's Secretery-General.

The funeral for the late Hindu leader takes place at the Lakshmi Girls' Hindu School on Tuesday, following which his body will be cremated at the Caroni Cremation Site.

Meanwhile, officers of the Northern Division will be performing a duty of care by preserving order at the wake.

A private ceremony will be held at Maharaj's home in Champ Fleurs.

The Highway Patrol Unit will provide the escort along the planned route to the funeral service and subsequently to the cremation site in Caroni.
