delhi Updated: Sep 13, 2009 12:29 IST

Internal security threats including Left-wing extremism, terrorism and coastal security will be reviewed extensively by the country's top police brass at a two-day conference beginning in New Delhi on Monday.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will have an interactive session with Directors General of Police and Inspectors General of Police on Tuesday during which he will be directly briefed on key policing and internal security issues.

Apart from chalking out strategies to check circulation of fake currency notes, insurgency in the Northeast and strengthening of intelligence apparatus, the DGPs and the IGPs will discuss National Police Mission, corporate frauds and security arrangements being planned for the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in 2010.

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will inaugurate the conference and he is likely to share his experience gathered during the just concluded visit to the US where he extensively interacted with top security experts of that country.

The objectives of the conference are to provide an interactive platform to senior police professionals and security administrators in the country to freely discuss and debate diverse national security related issues, as also the various operational, infrastructural and welfare-related problems faced by police in the country.
