Mumbai, Mar 10: The sole terrorist captured in the Mumbai terror strikes, Azam Amir Kasav will be safely protected from potential attackers in three security rings at the Arthur Road Jail. He is lodged in the famous 'anda cell' which is usually reserved for the most notorious criminals.
"A crack team of the Mumbai Police will guard the outer periphery of the jail while the ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) will guard the precincts inside. The core area where Kasav is lodged will be guarded by the jail's own security set-up," Maharashtra Minister of State for Home Naseem Khan said on Tuesday, Mar 10.
There will be cameras in all parts of the jail, some hidden. The images will be relayed to a central control room that will be manned by security officials, he added.
The jail is secured with barriers of different types, including reinforced steel-concrete walls that can resist bombs, grenades and rapid fire weapons.
