Stepping up security in the city ahead of assembly elections, central paramilitary forces, along with the city police and Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) personnel, took out a flag march in various pockets of the city on Saturday.

Nearly 25 companies of PAC, 2,000 home guards and 2,000 civil police have started doing the rounds of the city to get familiarised with the area.

“We have identified eight centres and 25 sensitive booths in Noida for which extra deployment of armed guards will be made. On Friday, we also had a meeting with senior police officials of Delhi who have agreed to help us in checking. Borders will be barricaded from 6 pm on Sunday,” SP (city) Anant Dev said.
