Fifty per cent of paramilitary forces to stay back in Gujarat till counting

December 13, 2002 20:52 IST

At least half of the 50,000 odd security personnel deployed for the December 12 election in Gujarat will stay back till Sunday, when the votes polled on Thursday would be counted.

"Fifty per cent of the state and Central security personnel deployed for election duty will remain stationed at counting centres and sensitive parts of the state till the counting is over," Director General of Police K Chakravarthy told reporters.

Gradual withdrawal of fifty per cent of the amalgamated troops and Central forces will start from Saturday.

Chakravarthy expressed satisfaction over the state police and the paramilitary forces' handling of the elections.

"Some parts of the state were tense, but prompt action by security personnel prevented the situation from going out of hand," he said.
