In preparation for the upcoming ICC World Cup final between India and Australia, the Gujarat Police have taken proactive measures to ensure the safety and security of the event.
To respond effectively to potential chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear emergencies, teams from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been deployed in Ahmedabad.
According to the city’s police chief, elaborate security arrangements have been put in place, with 10 teams of the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad positioned strategically around the Narendra Modi stadium.
Additionally, two teams of Chetak Commandos, an elite unit specializing in crisis response, will also be stationed to handle any unforeseen situations.
While there have been concerns about possible threats, the police have not received any specific inputs regarding a potential danger.
In response to media inquiries, the police chief emphasized that highlighting threats from unknown sources outside India should be avoided, underlining the importance of not sensationalizing unverified information.
This comprehensive security deployment underscores the commitment of the authorities to ensure a safe and secure environment for the ICC World Cup final, allowing cricket enthusiasts to enjoy the game without apprehension.
The presence of NDRF teams adds an extra layer of preparedness, demonstrating the authorities’ dedication to handling various emergency scenarios effectively.
