Security around Chinnaswamy Stadium beefed up
Bangalore: In the wake of the recent bomb blast near the BJP state headquarters here, the Police today beefed up security around the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, which is hosting the home matches of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
"Cricket lovers should not bring any kind of bags including vanity bags, cameras, any type of eatables or soft drinks. Even water bottels or cans are not allowed inside. No `entertainment` items like flags, balloons or any other such material will not be allowed inside the stadium," City Police Commissioner Raghavendra Auradkar said in a statement here.
The city hosts eight IPL matches every year and four of them have been completed. The remaining matches will be held on April 23, 26 and May 14 and 18.
Police have put more restrictions on spectators to cut out the risks of possible terror attack at the stadium which witnessed two crude bombs go off during an IPL match on April 17, 2010, injuring 17 stadium workers.
Incidentally the Malleswaram blast occurred on the same day after four years. He said all spectators should enter the stadium by 1900 hrs, one hour before the start of the match as there will be individual frisking of the spectators.
