Around 1,800 police personnel will be deployed for tomorrow's third Twenty20 match between India and Australia at the Rajiv Gandhi international cricket stadium in Uppal here.

Elaborate security arrangements have been made in coordination with different wings, like security, traffic, law and order, armed component (platoons), OCTOPUS--the elite anti-terrorist force in Telangana, and Special Branch, a top police official said.

Two fire tenders with firefighting squad will be also positioned at the venue.

"Around 1,800 police personnel are deployed as part of bandobust. 56 CCTV cameras are being installed to cover the entire stadium area. Additional bandobust arrangements are made in and around the stadium round-the-clock," Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat said.

A Joint Command and Control Room is also set up to monitor the CCTV footages for taking immediate action, he said, adding that special parties are deployed separately to meet with any contingency.

The top cop said that anti-sabotage checks with the help of eight Bomb Disposal teams would continue round-the-clock until the match is over.

Separate teams are being deployed for checking the movements of anti-social elements while SHE Teams teams are being deployed to control eve teasing, he said. PTI
