Bellary: Rapid Action Force personnel and
Karnataka State Reserve Police commandos would be deployed in
this city tomorrow to meet any eventuality during the
culmination of the 16-day Congress rally here, police said.

"Six batallions of RAF and one batallion of KSRP commandos
will assist the 5,500 strong security personnel drafted for
security cover," ADGP (Law and Order) A R Infant, who is
monitoring security, told reporters here.

He said a bomb disposal squad has been kept at the
disposal of security wing.

The Congress will wind up its padayatra with a rally here
tomorrow to press for a CBI probe into illegal mining and
export of iron ore, besides protesting against the `failures`
of the BJP government.

Tourism Minister G Janardhana Reddy, his brother and
Revenue Minister G Karunakara Reddy and Health Minister B
Sreeramulu, who has come under attack from the opposition for
their alleged involvement in illegal mining, have chosen to
stay away from Bellary tomorrow.
