Hyderabad: A three-layered security cover has been devised by the city police to ensure the safety of delegates and audience attending the World Telugu Conference (WTC) commencing at the LB Stadium on Friday.
Over 3,200 traffic personnel and police officers from both security and law & order wings will be deployed on the ground to curb undesirable and suspicious activities at the venue.
"At events like these, audience fear of being mobbed and robbed; but, we have appointed special mufti teams, comprising 9 battalions of law and order police personnel and several sleuths of the Central Crime Station, to catch hold of troublemakers," explains D Joel Davis, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Central Zone.
Apart from the ground staff, a dedicated team of intelligence security officials and those from the Special branch will be monitoring all corners of the stadium through a makeshift control room.
They can detect and control any kind of commotion during the event. In all, 100 state-of-the-art cameras have been placed across all the entry gates of the stadium. Overseeing the safety of President Ram Nath Kovind, who will be attending the valedictory ceremony on December 19, an army unit will soon take stock of the security arrangements being made by the city police.
Three special help desks at Basheerbagh, BJR Statue, and AR Petrol Bunk will assist participants in resolving queries regarding the venue and help them to report any kind of inconvenience caused by fellow participants. SHE Team officials in mufti and uniform will be deployed near stands specially reserved for women and at the food counters to help women in distress.
"Keeping all the odds in mind, we have even strategised a contingency plan to evacuate people from 10 exit ways, according to the sectors in which they are seated. A fire unit and a medical unit will be stationed at the venue to take care of any emergency" Joel Davis said.
