According to Ahmedabad Police Commissioner GS Malik, after the threats came to light, high level security arrangements have been made at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad for the India-Pakistan ODI World Cup match.
More than 11,000 security personnel from multiple agencies including Gujarat Police, NSG, RAF and Home Guard will be deployed at the stadium. There has been no communal violence at Narendra Modi Stadium Ahmedabad during cricket matches played in the city in the last 20 years.
Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel held a meeting with Minister of State for Home Harsh Shanghvi, state DGP Vikas Sahay, GS Malik and other senior police officials in Gandhinagar. After this, in a press conference, GS Malik said that the Chief Minister has examined the security arrangements and has asked the police to take all necessary precautions to ensure that.
Four senior IPS officers, including Inspector General and Deputy Inspector General, and 21 Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) officers will supervise and direct the security personnel.
GS Malik said apart from 13 companies of State Reserve Police (SRP), we will deploy three companies of Rapid Action Force as part of our security arrangements. RAF will keep an eye on sensitive areas of the city. We have already prepared an evacuation plan to help the people.
