Extra vigil for Ramnavami

East Singhbhum district will make extensive security arrangements starting from police deployment to no-entry restrictions for vehicles to ensure peaceful Ramnavami celebrations, which have coincided with the poll season.

After a meeting to review preparations for the festivities that have fallen on April 8 and 9, deputy commissioner (DC) Amitabh Kaushal urged political parties to see to it that their nominees abide by the model code of conduct.

Senior superintendent of police Amol V. Homkar, who attended the meeting with his subordinates, said adequate number of policemen would be deployed to keep an eye on immersion processions on April 9 when around 150 registered and non-registered akharas will hit the streets.

Rapid Action Force and Rapid Action Police personnel will be deployed at strategic locations, while a control room will be set up at Sakchiís district police control room. Magistrates and police officers will be on standby.

This apart, temporary watchtowers will be set up at the main roundabout in Sakchi and near the one at Subernarekha bridge.

ďWe held talks with members of the central peace committee. They have demarcated sensitive spots where police will be deployed. We will also restrict entry of heavy vehicles like trucks and trailers into the city on April 8 and April 9,Ē Homkar said.

All Jamshedpur-bound heavy vehicles will be stopped at Dimna, Pardih and Sundernagar, while those coming from Adityapur will be stalled at Kharkai bridge.

Three-wheelers and mini-buses will not be allowed to ply after 2pm on April 9. Bistupur, Sakchi, Jugsalai, Mango and Kadma police will be told to ensure that private vehicles keep off the routes earmarked for processions.
