NSG team reviews Srimandir’s security




 A three-member team National Security Guard (NSG) team from its regional hub at Hyderabad visited Sri Jagannath Temple at Puri and reviewed the security arrangements inside the 12th century shrine today.

The visit came two days ahead of the team’s scheduled ‘reconnaissance’ of the temple on August 28 and 29 in consultation with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Odisha Police as well as intelligence agencies. During its visit this morning, the NSG team took stock of the security arrangements in the inner and outer sanctorum of the temple from various angles. The team took a close look at the CCTV cameras at the four entrances and along the compound wall, known as ‘Meghanad Pacheri’, and watch towers inside the temple. 
The officials of the elite anti-terrorist squad also held a discussion with security officials on duty at the Srimandir as well as Puri Additional SP Banabihari Sahu on the scanning of all devotees and entrants into the shrine with metal detectors.
