Today is the last day of Ganesh Utsav, in which the Bappa idol will be immersed today. Let me tell all of you that today, before Ganpati Visarjan, Mumbai police has tightened the security arrangements in the entire city. Mumbai Police is on high alert today ahead of immersion. We have already told all of you that security has been beefed up in the metropolis after the incident of suspected terrorists caught some time ago. This information was given by a Mumbai Police officer.
Recently, the Anti-Terrorism Squad of Mumbai Police has also arrested a person in connection with the terrorist conspiracy caught and busted by Delhi police. Let us also tell you that after ten days of Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesh Utsav, Bappa's farewell is scheduled to take place today and his statue will be immersed. Ganesh Utsav will conclude today itself. You must be aware that this year's Ganesh Utsav has not been the same as every year due to the corona epidemic. In view of the danger of the spread of corona, the procession to bid farewell to Bappa has also been banned.
Last Saturday, Mumbai Police Spokesperson and Deputy Commissioner S Chaitanya said, "Security has been beefed up around important establishments. He also informed that apart from police patrolling in the sensitive area, there will be heavy deployment of police at the Ganesh Visarjan site as well.'' Mumbai Police will be making arrangements for additional lighting, cranes, divers, ambulances and fire tenders to deal with any emergency situation. At the same time, three companies of State Reserve Police Force, one company of Central Reserve Police Force, 500 Home Guards and 275 Constables have been deployed in the city in view of security arrangements.
