Top police officials have taken stock of security arrangements at the MMRDA ground, where CCTVs, metal detectors besides barricades will be installed for Anna Hazare's three-day fast from December 27 demanding a stronger Lokpal bill.
"They have agreed to install CCTVs, metal detectors and ground barricades at the venue. They will start work by Sunday morning and the ground will be ready by evening on December 26 (Monday)," DCP Saytya Narayan Choudhary told reporters at the ground.
Joint Commissioner (Law and Order) Rajnish Sheth also visited the ground on Saturday evening.
"We have given them some Dos and Don'ts," said a police source adding final inspection of the ground would be conducted on Monday.
Meanwhile, the police have also asked the organisers to slightly modify the layout plan. "Since Anna has Z+ security, police have asked us to make some changes in the layout plan," said an Anna aide.
