Delhi: Security Beefed Up For Modi’s Swearing-In Ceremony 

| Updated: June 8, 2024 18:01

A high-level security with companies of paramilitary personnel, NSG commandos, drones, and snipers is going to cover the Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony slated for June 9, Delhi Police officials said on Friday.

Officials claimed that since dignitaries from SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries have been invited to the ceremony, the nation’s capital would be on high alert that day.

Dignitaries attending the oath ceremony will be given specific routes from their hotels to the venue and back, according to officials. 

The swearing-in event is expected to be attended by high-ranking officials from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Bhutan, Nepal, Mauritius, and the Seychelles.

Many hotels in the national capital, including the Oberoi, Leela, Taj, ITC Maurya, and Claridges, have already been put under security.

On the day of the ceremony, commandos from Delhi Police’s SWAT and NSG units would continue to be stationed around the President’s residence and other key spots.

To create a security strategy for the event, Delhi Police officials stated that they had conducted many meetings at the police headquarters. 

A senior police officer stated that since the event will be hosted within Rashtrapati Bhavan, there will be a three-layered security in place both inside and outside the premises.

Internal security of the President’s residence and paramilitary forces would be stationed at the inner ring, with Delhi Police personnel remaining at the outer ring.

“Around 2500 police personnel, including five companies of paramilitary and Delhi Armed Police (DAP) jawans, have been planned to be deployed around the venue,” the officer said.

Another officer stated that the security cover would probably match the one for the G20 summit last year. Snipers and armed police personnel continue to be stationed along the dignitaries’ paths, and drones will be stationed at key places in New Delhi.

The officer said multiple roads heading towards the central region of Delhi may be closed on Sunday or there may be traffic diversions since morning.
