Ghaziabad: District police have chalked out a fool-proof security plan for BJP’s Prime Ministerial Candidate Narendra Modi, who will to address a rally at Shipra Ground in Indirapuram area here tomorrow.

According to police officers, around 3,000 police personnel would be deployed at the rally venue and every police station’s anti-terrorism cell has been activated.

Police said that as per security plan, one SSP, one SP, four Additional SPs, 14 SHOs, 111 sub-inspectors, 2 women sub-inspectors, 80 head-constables, 950 constables, 82 women constables and one company of PAC (Provincial Armed Constabulary) would be deployed in and around the venue, adding that around 10 metal detectors have been installed at entry points.

“Besides, Narendra Modi would be guarded by NSG personnel and special Gujarat Police. Quick Response Teams (QRT) and bomb disposal squads have been kept on stand-by. People coming to rally venue would be frisked,” Superintendent of Police (city) Shiv Hari Meena told PTI.
