On the eve of new year, a reveller tweeted the Bengaluru City Police, " Dear @BlrCityPolice actually brigade road fills with a lot of cops, more than the people." Then a prompt reply came from the police, "to celebrate Happy New Year2018 peacefully".
Bengaluru city Police were floored with the appreciation for their impeccable security arrangements keeping in view last year's shameful incident which shook the conscience of the nation.
The elaborate bandobast in the city included drone camera surveillance, night vision binoculars, CCTV, LED screens, patrol vehicles and mobilisation of a maximum number of officers and staff.
Across the city, a 15,000-strong security force was deployed and a large number of the personnel were at Brigade Road and M.G. Road to avert incidents.
