Bhubaneswar, Aug 19:
Massive security arrangements have been made by the Commissionerate police for the smooth conduct of the monsoon session of the Assembly starting on Tuesday.
Talking to the newsmen about security measures ahead of the Assembly session, twin-city Commissioner Rajendra Prasad said; “We have put in place a three-layer security arrangement for the security of the Assembly building as well as to prevent trespassing by agitators while the session is on.”
A total of 38 platoons of police force had been deployed to maintain law and order. They would be led by two DCPs, ACPs and inspectors, the Commissioner said.
CCTV cameras have also been installed at strategic locations on three sides of the Assembly building to monitor the movement of the demonstrators and agitators, he said.
“Police officers have to co-ordinate with each other during the peak hour of the Assembly session. Every police station will have some additional staff to take care of routine security duties. If any emergency develops in any police station, then some of the staffs will be diverted there from the assembly work station,” Sharma said.
Later, Sharma along with Additional DG Sanjeev Marik, DCP Nitinjeet Singh and Additional DCP Santosh Bala inspected the OLA premises and discussed the deployment of security forces inside it.
