The Uttar Pradesh Police has made elaborate arrangements to ensure safety and security of people during the festival of Holi on March 21. In its advisory, the organisation directed its officials to remain vigilant round the clock in order to prevent any untoward incident.
The police has also directed various organisations not to hold any public gathering on the day of Holi. Scores of officers have been deployed at vulnerable points and major intersections to detect and prosecute the defaulters.
“In order to prevent any mishaps, BDM team and sniffer dogs will conduct checking in various areas to ensure safety of the people.”
“To light up Holika before the time, to change the place of Holika creates chaos. An official should keep an eye on this while on duty. All officers and in-charge police posts have been directed to remain present in their respective jurisdiction.”
“We have also urged other agencies to help us control the people inside the trains in case any untoward incident takes place. People have been advised not to take preventive actions by not touching any abandoned object and immediately informing police on seeing any suspicious person, object or material,” the dossier read.
