Beefed up security in Guwahati for puja

Security has been beefed in Guwahati in the run-up to the Durga Puja next week.

Policemen are working at various levels and have carried out risk assessments. Additional forces have been sought to be deployed to deal with the anti-social elements. Raids on anti-social elements have been intensified.

The puja organizers and volunteers have been imparted training to deal with any untoward incident.

Vigorous operations have also been launched to tackle the problem of illicit liquor and organising committees have been asked to install CCTVs in pandals and take other security measures. Guwahati has over 500 puja committees organise this year.
