Heavy police personnel were seen deployed at ITO, ED office and roads leading to the BJP headquarters.

Few AAP workers, carrying posters, ‘mei bhi Kejriwal’ were seen protesting at the ITO footover bridge.

A senior police official said that to maintain law and order, they have increased the security measures in the national capital.

“We will deploy paramilitary forces alongside Delhi Police personnel. Senior officers will oversee the situation in their respective districts. SHOs have been instructed to maintain strict surveillance in their areas and promptly inform their superiors of any protest,” said the official.

The police officer further said that they have instructed the traffic police to facilitate uninterrupted traffic movement in various areas of Delhi and to quickly arrange diversions for commuters in case the AAP workers and leaders organise protest marches.
