Bangalore, Sep 23 (ANI): M. Chinnaswamy cricket stadium in Bangalore has been equipped with sensitive cameras and long distance explosive detectors.

Twenty-nine closed circuit television cameras, of which five are highly sophisticated and have 360-degree vision, would keep tap on each nook and corner of the stadium.

Trained marshals, each provided with a sensitive camera on their helmet, would also be armed with sensitive detectors capable of tracing explosives as far as 300 meters radius.

The 29 CCTVs and upto 15 marshals in turn would be centrally monitored.

"This is called OSD camera which is put on our helmets and which is directly connected to the CMS vehicle which is standing outside the stadium. So, whatever we see, whatever we do, each and every pinpoint of the stadium will be seen in the CMS vehicle.

In case we suspect any explosive we will automatically speak to the seniors sitting in the vehicle and they will instruct us what next to be done," said Moses Digvijay, a security marshal.

Security concerns in the country have heightened following the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in the Pakistani in March this year and last year Mumbai terror attack. (ANI)
