Bhubaneswar, Nov 28 (UNI) Hotel and Restaurant Association of Orissa (HRAO) today urged the state government to take preventive security measures to thwart any possible terrorist attack on hotels in the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
In a letter to state Director General of Police, HRAO Chairman J K Mohanty said preventive measures were needed in the wake of the growing incidents of terrorist attacks in different places of the country, particularly the hotels.
Mr Mohanty said the hotel industry of Orissa was extremely worried and apprehensive of the potential threat to them and their guests and urged the Police Chief to provide ground logistic support and ensure pre-emptive surveillance management.
He requested the DGP to deploy special patrolling surveillance team for the safety and security of the properties of the hotels and life of the guests, including foreign tourists, accommodated in the hotels to avoid any unforeseen eventuality.
Mr Mohanty also urged the Police Chief to convene an emergency meeting with all the stakeholders and the police officials to neutralise the possible danger to life and property.
