Patna: Security measures would be further tightened in and around the Patna High Court premises in the wake of recent blasts at the gate of Delhi High Court.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting which took stock of the security at the court, officials said on Saturday.

Apart from three judges of the High Court, ADG (Special Branch) A S Nimbram and ADG (law and order) P N Rai also attended the meeting held yesterday.

Official sources said all the four gates of the court were being guarded by Bihar Military Police (BMP) personnel.

CCTVs would be installed at all important points to keep surveillance on the activities and visitors would be thoroughly frisked with metal detector, sources said.

At present, 50 constables and 24 havildars are said to be deployed for general security duties within and outside the courts as also the two pass counters.

A decision was also taken to further sandbag the security set up on all the gates with security to prevent uninhibited entry of any intruder and ensure constant patrolling on the outer periphery, they said.
