Security was beefed up in the state capital and all big pandals would be brought under CCTV camera surveillance. 38 watch towers were set up, including the state capital and many drop gates set up for checking of vehicles entering Agartala.
Altogether 120 police assistance booths would be in place all over the state, he said.
Patrolling by para-military forces has already started in the hilly and remote areas and the Border Security Force (BSF)has been alerted to maintain a vigil along the 856-km long India-Bangladesh border, especially where the barbed wire fencing was yet to be constructed.
Civil Defence and NCC volunteers were engaged in puja duties and strict vigil was being maintained on the Assam-Agartala National Highway so that vehicle could ply even at midnight without any trouble.
