History & Archives




Kerala Armed Police II Battalion Headquarters is situated at Puduppariyaram village, in Palakkad District. KAP II Battalion was formed on 4.7.1977 as per the GO (MS) 132/76/home Dtd 6.10.1976. One company of MSP was stationed here till 1977. MSP vacated all the buildings and handed them over to KAP II Battalion in July 1977.

The place is not famous for anything except Muttikulangara oil. About the oil: legend says that about five generations ago one Ezhava family karanavar got some fish from a pond. There itself he cleaned and cut the fish and sent it home covered with a leaf. But later when it reached home, it was found that the cut fish remains united and no cut was seen. The clever fellow realized that this leaf is a medical herb and can be used for treating cuts and wounds. Using this leaf he manufactured the oil, which is used as a potent medicine. Lots of people visit here for treatment and the name of the plant is kept secret.

Important thing about the camp is that it is just perched on the root of Ghat Wind, which assumes high velocity and adversely affects the health of the personnel. Because of the same reason the place is subjected to extreme climate.

An area of 32.8 acres of forest land at Aruvacode in Nilambur Division was leased out to MSP as per the GO ( MS ) No. 1075/25 Dtd: 20. 07. 1925 for the occupation of the Special Police Force.
