DAVANGERE, APRIL 17. As many as 117 mobile police parties have been set up in the district for the smooth conduct of elections to the Lok Sabha and State Legislative Assembly to be held on April 20.

Explaining the security arrangements for the election, Malini Krishnamurthy, Superintendent of Police, said one mobile squad would be in-charge of 15 to 25 booths, depending on the distance of the polling booths. A head constable and a constable would be posted at each of the 615 hyper-sensitive booths in the district while a police constable would be posted at each of the sensitive booths, she added.

Ms. Krishnamurthy said four election-related cases had been booked in the district and 42 persons had been arrested as a precautionary measure so far.
