Security arrangements have been tightened ahead of a drive to serve 'Quit India' notices to 1,551 identified Bangladeshi infiltrators living in ten villages in Orissa's Kendrapara district, official sources said.

The serving of notices will start from Ramnagar village, District Collector Hemant Sharma said.

Additional police forces have been deployed to thwart possible resistance from the settlers, he said.

Sharma said special teams comprising revenue officials and school headmasters have been constituted to assist the police in the exercise.

The teams would serve the notices on the identified settlers. Once these notices are signed by the person, he/she would be required to leave the country within 30 days, official sources said.
