BHUBANESWAR: Special Protection Group (SPG) and Commissionerate Police on Saturday conducted a meeting to discuss the security arrangements ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Capital on April 16.

“We had a meeting with SPG (AIG), who was here for advance security liaison (ASL) drill. After receiving the ASL report, the police force requirement for Prime Minister’s visit will be assessed,” Twin City Commissioner of Police Satyajit Mohanty said.

About 50 platoons of police force and 150 to 200 officers are likely to be deployed here during the period to maintain law and order,” Mohanty said.
