LUCKNOW: Six companies of the Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), Central forces and around 1,500 policemen will guard the Allahabad High Court and its Bench in Lucknow ahead of the September 24 verdict on the Babri title suit. Adequate security is also being provided at the residences of three judges who will pronounce the judgment in Lucknow.

Additional Director-General (Law and Order) Brij Lal told journalists here on Monday that security at the Lucknow Bench would be taken care of a Superintendent of Police, six Assistant SPs, 22 Deputy SPs, 17 inspectors, 144 sub-inspectors, 104 head constables and 860 constables.

The Allahabad High Court would have two ASPs, 16 Deputy SPs, six inspectors, 30 sub-inspectors and 200 constables on duty.

Four PAC companies would be deployed in the Allahabad High Court, and two companies in its Lucknow Bench. The deployment of Central forces in Lucknow and Allahabad would begin on their arrival.

The residences of the judges on the Special Bench would be guarded by one platoon each of the PAC. Each judge would be provided one personal security officer and five CRPF jawans, apart from a pilot and an escort. One deputy SP would monitor the security at the judges' residence.

Mr. Lal said water cannon and fire brigades will be kept in readiness and closed circuit television installed in the court building.
