New Delhi, Jan 17: Security arrangements are in full swing ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit to India on Jan 25. Right from making sure that the stray cattle are off the roads in Delhi to Delhi-Agra highway being shut for the public, security personnel are leaving no stone unturned.
On Friday the Delhi Police said that there was a threat of aerial attacks from terror groups ahead of the Republic Day celebrations, which will be attended by Obama. Obama was invited by PM Narendra Modi to attend the Republic Day celebrations.
Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi called for increased police vigilance and even asked all the security personnel to keep a watch on flying of para-glider, micro-light air craft.
Obama will visit The Taj Mahal in Agra and over 50 commandos will be stationed in the city during his visit. Security personnel from the US are already in the capital and in Agra overlooking all the security arrangements. The security team from the US wants all restaurants and hotels en route to Agra to be sanitised and shut a day before Obama leaves for the city.
