Nagpur: Police are gearing up to provide foolproof security during the Winter Session of Maharashtra Legislature commencing here from December 1.

This will be the first session of the Assembly after Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan took charge early this month.

"There will be a three-tier security cordon around the House. Personnel from the city police, State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) and commandos from Force One will be deployed to ensure smooth session," Nagpur Commissioner of Police Ankush Dhanvijay said.

Though there are no specific inputs from the Central intelligence agencies about possible terror threat, police are not taking any chances, he told a press conference yesterday.

All important places like the Assembly building, official residences of the Chief Minister and Deputy CM, Ministers` cottages and Raj Bhavan will be provided with adequate security, he said.

About 9,000 policemen and 1,250 officers would be deployed for security during the session, Dhanvijay said.
