India prepares for Republic Day (Pics)
New Delhi, Jan 25: India is preparing for the 65th Republic Day celebrations on 26 January, Sunday.

Security has been beefed up in the national capital with around 25,000 personnel of the Delhi Police and paramilitary forces keeping a tight vigil to ensure incident-free Republic Day celebrations.

Elaborate ground-to-air security has been put in place, especially on the 8-km-long route for Republic Day parade from Raisina Hills to Red Fort. During the parade, spotters and snipers will be positioned on high-rise buildings while officials will keep a tab on all movements between Rajpath and Red Fort with over 160 CCTV cameras installed in the area.
