Jamshedpur : Unprecedented security arrangements are being made at the Jamshedpur civil court premises under Sitaramdera police station area after former JMM leader and transporter Upendra Singh was murdered. A team from administration carried inspection of the court premises in order to install new cameras.
In view of the recent attack on undertrial at the Jamshedpur Civil Court premises, the police administration has turned the court into a virtual fortress with deployment of additional security personnel. The security forces are frisking the visitors.
“We had demanded for a trained policemen at the security duty, electronic gates at the all the entrances, CCTV cameras at all the floors of the two Bar building and effective frisking of clients and their men at the gates.
The deputy commissioner, Amit Kumar has promised to meet all this demands, but within one month time,” said a lawyer.
Though there are CCTV cameras installed at all the four entrances of the three-storeyed Civil Court complex, but there is no such surveillance camera at the two bar buildings where over 2,000 practicing lawyers sit for providing legal assistance and consultation.
Initially, there was a little presence of policemen at the entrances of the court premises, but after an abortive bid on undertrial gangster Akhilesh Singh by two armed youths last year, the administration had deputed 45 policemen at the entrances and also introduced the frisking of the visitors with apparently suspicious ones.
