Hyderabad, Oct 14: Tight security would be provided for the week-long fourth CISM Military World Games beginning here today. Police department is taking precaution to avert any kind of situation in the event of recent bomb blast at Ajmer and its connections with Hyderabad.
State Police along with NSG and Military Intelligence officials were working closely to quell the challenge posed by the extremists and fundamentalists. Indian Air Force is providing helicopters to hover around the city for monitoring traffic jams on the roads, leading to the main venues.
