CCTVs and drones in place for Ramnavami procession in Jamshedpur


Jamshedpur, March 29: Jamshedpur police are taking help of breathalyzers, CCTV and drone cameras, besides deploying security bandobast to gear up for Ram Navami celebrations free of drunks, accidents and social tension.

The administration is all set to place a strict security arrangement with a special focus on eve teasing and hooligans.

The administration as part of its security measures has decided to ensure electronic surveillance during Ramnavami procession to keep an eye on rowdy elements, who often create nuisance, during the religious procession especially as it passes through communally sensitive areas.

The grand Ram Navami immersion procession which is taken out by the respective akhara committees will take place on March 31.

The administration is serious in ensuring first aid and ambulance services during the festivity and the procession. Directives were issued to all the Akharas committees to strictly abide by the rules laid out in their licences especially pertaining to use of loudspeakers (public amplifiers).

The administration has also directed the respective local urban bodies and drinking water and sanitation department for arranging water tankers during the procession.

A police official said that all police stations have been asked to interact with the local akharas committee on a regular basis for a peaceful festival.

This apart, district police, Rapid Action Force (RAF) and CRPF jawans will also monitor the procession, he said. “We are installing CCTV cameras and drone cameras at key points, but in some sensitive areas we will engage videographers too,” he said, indicating the seriousness of police bandobast every year for the festival after the 1989 riots.

Requesting people to join hands with the police and administration in ensuring a peaceful Ram Navami, the official said: “Processions should be taken out decently so that people, including women and children, can enjoy without fear.”

He also asked akharas not to violate decibel limits while playing songs and abstain from tracks that can be deemed communal.
