4000-strong force of security personnel to be deployed for bandobast during PM’s tour, reports said
Nagpur: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to Nagpur on December 11, top police officials on Tuesday reviewed security arrangements and drew a bandobast plan of around 4,000 security personnel from different units.
Commissioner of Police (CP) Amitesh Kumar, Joint CP Aswati Dorje and Addl CP Crime Navinchandra Reddy visited Nagpur Railway Station, Freedom Park of Nagpur Metro, Airport, Zero Mile of Balasaheb Thackeray Samruddhi Expressway and premises of AIIMS on Tuesday and took review of security arrangements.
According to reports, PM Modi would arrive at Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport at 10 am and proceed to Nagpur Railway Station by road where he would flag off Nagpur-BilaspurVande Bharat Express and lay foundation stone for the station redevelopment project. Soon after, the PM will inaugurate a photo exhibition at Freedom Park near Morris College T-Point.
A top official of Nagpur Metro stated that PM Modi might take a ride in Nagpur Metro from Freedom Park to Khapri Railway Station and then continue his tour to Zero Mile of Samruddhi Expressway by road. He will likely inspect a minimum 10 km of distance of the expressway and return to the premises of AIIMS to address a grand rally.
The police officials received inputs about a gathering of around 25,000 people for the PM’s rally. Three domes are likely to be erected at AIIMS. CP Kumar is finalising the bandobast of around 4,000 police personnel with support of Quick Response Team, Riot Control Police and Home Guards. Around 1,000 police personnel will be deployed at AIIMS premises for the rally, claimed reports.
SPG to review security
Special Protection Group (SPG), which is entrusted with the task of providing proximate security to the Prime Minister, will also review the bandobast arrangements. The SPG team is likely to visit Nagpur on December 8 or 9 and conduct route trials.
