Navi Mumbai police have started security checks ahead of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber’s concert at DY Patil stadium in Nerul, which is slated for Wednesday. “If anyone arouses our suspicion by roaming around the city, he or she will be detained and interrogated. We will conduct thorough searches near the stadium and at other places,” said Kiran Patil, assistant commissioner of police of Turbhe division.

Twenty police squads comprising 25 officials each are currently in the process of visiting lodges and hotels and searching rooms as a preventive measure.

Police are also conducting nakabandis at different places to monitor vehicles on the city’s roads.

“People from many other Indian cities are expected to come to Mumbai to attend the concert. A majority of them are young people. We have taken steps to ensure that they are safe inside and outside the stadium,” said Patil.
