New Delhi: In wake of the bomb blast that rattled the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, the security has been stepped at the premises and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is set to take over the responsibility of High Court security along with the Delhi Police.

Till now, the Rajasthan Armed Constabulary (RAC) was handling the security with the Delhi Police.

The decision of handing over the security from RAC to CRPF was taken in a high level meeting held on Thursday.

Divulging the details about the meeting, Delhi government counsel Najmi Waziri said that there was lack of coordination between the agencies handling the security.

“The Chief Justice made it clear that he wanted security which will be the responsibility of the Police Commissioner. There should be no complaint about coordination in future,” he added.

On Friday, CRPF took stock of the security situation at the high court and will take over the entire responsibility formally on Monday.

Strict security check

After the Delhi High Court blast rattled the city, the police are not allowing anyone inside the premises without strict checking, pass or ID cards.

Vehicles entering the premises also have to undergo a strict check. Police are now asking car owners for 2011 stickers on their vehicles and are interrogating unknown people near the High Court chambers.
