Monday, 26 May 2014

Around 10,000 security personnel  - drawn from Delhi police, paramilitary and NSG commandos, will form the five-layer security ring and will keep a hawk-eye vigil, with a ground-to-air security system, at par with the one placed during the Republic Day parade, also being put in place.

'We have made elaborate security arrangements for the swearing-in ceremony. Prohibitory orders have been put in place in the New Delhi district'.

'A complete air defence grid has been put in place. Any aerial activities, including hot air balloons, will not be allowed. We are on guard against any kind of terror act,' said Joint Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Mukesh Kumar Meena.

The Indian Air Force too has installed an air defence system to secure the skies. Anti-aircraft guns have been placed at sensitive locations.
