Security was tightened at the Uttar Pradesh legislature complex and "all anti-sabotage" measures were put in place, police said on Saturday, as a team of the National Investigative Agency (NIA) started its probe into the recovery of an explosive material in the state assembly.
ADG (law and order) Anand Kumar said, "Questioning of the people concerned (marshals and sanitation workers) is underway. As immediate measures, quick response teams, ATS and additional Provincial Armed Constabulary personnel have been deployed on the UP legislature premises." The ADG added, "As many as 109 CCTVs have been made functional to increase the vigil."
ATS sources said three teams of the force have been posted in the legislature complex.
An FIR has been filed against unknown people in the case under Unlawful (Activities) Prevention 2004 and Explosive Substances Act 1908.
