Mammoth security for Independance Day

Only a few hours is left. Amid a mammoth security arrangement the stage is set for Independence Day celebration on Friday. Security forces are fanning across the state in search of ULFA and NDFB(R) militants who are believed to have been waiting to strike on the red letter day.

Policemen deployed on the roads have intensified the checking of the vehicles apart from the massive checking and vigil at the railway and bus stations.    

Vital roads and bridges, Oil and gas installations are being heavily guarded to thwart attack by the militants who are believed to have entered the state to make their presence felt.

Security forces have been maintaining close vigil in the areas along the inter state border to prevent the entry of more militants these days.

Guwahati seems to have turned into a security fortress a week before the red letter day. Top ranked security officers have been monitoring the security of the Veterinary College playground in Khanapara where chief minister Tarun Gogoi will hoist the national tricolor on Friday.
