GUWAHATI: With the advent of Independence Day, security arrangements in the city have been beefed up.
ADCP East Nabaneet Mahanta said, “Taking extreme precautions against sudden insurgent attacks, thorough investigative operations are being carried out both at hills and plains to prevent any subversive activities.
Search raids are being conducted even in certain residences to unearth any militant members in hiding. Security has been tightened at the border areas and a strict vigil has been kept at the exit and entry points.
A special vigil has also been kept in the Meghalaya border due to suspicion regarding a certain group, who might try to cause an attack, as such we are in constant touch with neighbouring state Meghalaya”.
DCP Traffic Prasanta Saikia said, “There is a No Parking restriction on August 15 around the Veterinary College field, Khanapara on the occasion of Independence Day celebration. Red, blue and yellow passes will be allocated to vehicles which will be allowed to move upto Koinadhara point. From the said point, only the red and blue passes will be allowed to enter.
