In view of Babri Masjid demolition anniversary

KRISHNAGIRI/DHARMAPURI: Security has been tightened for vital installations and important places where the public congregate in Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri districts on the eve of the Babri Masjid demolition anniversary on Monday.

Superintendent of Police A.G. Babu told The Hindu on Sunday that the Krishnagiri district police had made elaborate security arrangements on the eve of the Babri Masjid demolition anniversary.

Twenty mobile police team in four-wheelers and 25 two-wheeler mobile teams were deployed in the entire district from Sunday.

Security has been beefed up in nine regular check-posts, including the two in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh borders. Additionally, 36 check-posts were established across the district.

Police pickets were posted near state and central government installations such as power sub-stations, railway stations, Doordarshan relay centres, BSNL towers, telephone exchanges and offices of the Hindu and Muslim outfits to prevent any untoward incidents.

Places of worship have been granted additional security. Reinforcements have been dispatched to vulnerable areas of the district, Mr. Babu added.

A top police official said that the Dharmapuri district police had made elaborate security arrangements and tightened vigil across the district.

Thirty teams were formed each with two police personnel for maintaining round-the-clock open line patrolling along the 90-km rail track in the district.

The district police have created three Quick Reaction Teams with 10 police personnel, headed by an officer in the rank of Inspector. Three anti-sabotage teams were formed in addition to strengthening the 10 check-posts in the district.

Forty-seven police pickets were formed and posted at places of worships and vital central and state government installations in the district, he added.
