Bangalore: With the Cauvery Waters Dispute Tribunal scheduled to deliver its final verdict on February 5, the Bangalore police are stepping up security to pre-empt trouble.
Commissioner of Police Neelam Achuta Rao told presspersons on Thursday that as the Cauvery waters issue was an "emotional" one, the police have decided to tighten security. The officers are evaluating the situation and a detailed "bandobust" plan is being worked out with focus on sensitive areas and roads. Additional forces are being summoned from other places.
The Commissioner said the police were working in coordination with the Central and State intelligence agencies to ensure that subversive forces do not disrupt the Aero India-2007 scheduled to be held here from February 6.
Although the Central intelligence agencies have not provided any specific inputs on the possible sabotage, they have sounded a general alert. In view of Bangalore being high on the terrorist radar, security has been strengthened for the air show, which will see several foreign companies participate.
