New Delhi: Strengthening of intelligence
mechanism, containing Naxal and terror menace, security of
mega cities and coastlines will be high on agenda during the
two-day meet of Director Generals of Police beginning Monday,
which will be addressed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Activities of Pakistan-based terror outfits and situation
in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the Northeast will also come
up for review at the conference which is being organised by
the Intelligence Bureau.
Threadbare discussions will be held with the DGPs on the
security situation and measures to be adopted to maintain law

wing, augmenting police forces and preparedness of Quick
Reaction Teams, a top Home Ministry official said.
The meeting will review the measures adopted to tighten
security along the 7,200 km-long coastline, increase the
number of police stations, check posts and interceptor boats.
The information collection system -- both technical and
human intelligence -- its proper sharing and necessary action,
modernisation of police forces, procurement of arms and
ammunition, filling up of vacancies besides providing training
to security forces will also come up for review.
The Centre will stress on making police recruitment
Non-functional of coastal police stations and non-
utilisation of interceptor boats given by the Centre will
come up for review.
The Centre will also review the outcome of the mock
security drills the states were asked to conduct on a regular
basis to check preparedness of the forces.
During the last conference of the Chief Ministers, Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh had accused Pakistan of utilising
terrorism as an instrument of state policy and said given the
"sophistication and military precision" of the Mumbai terror
attacks, they must have had the support of some official
agencies in that country.
During the conference last month, the Prime Minister had
said "There is credible information of ongoing plans of
terrorist groups in Pakistan to carry out fresh attacks".
