New Delhi: Security has been beefed up at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the wake of the World Cup match between Canada and Kenya to be held on Monday here. The armed security personnel and Delhi Police are keeping a tight vigil around the stadium.

Over 1,000 police personnel led by five Deputy Commissioners of Police have been deployed in and around the stadium in central Delhi.

Several mock drills were conducted earlier at the stadium to check the preparedness of security agencies in case of any eventualities like terror strike or any disaster, a senior police official said.

"We have made all arrangements and put in place all the safety measures to avoid any untoward incident. The disaster management team is also here," the official said.

Police have also made elaborate traffic arrangements to ensure that there is minimum inconvenience to the commuters.

No parking will be allowed for general vehicles in proximity to the stadium on Monday. For spectators, park and ride facility has been created at Mata Sundari Parking and Shanti Van Parking. Spectators can also walk down to the stadium.

"There will be very limited parking facilities for labelled vehicles in the proximity of the stadium and no parking will be allowed for general vehicles," the official said.

He added that no vehicle will be allowed to be parked on both the carriageways of Bahadurshah Zafar Marg and Jawaharlal Nehru Marg on the match days and vehicles parked on these roads will be towed away.

Spectators cannot bring electronic items like laptop, camera or video camera, transistor, digital diary, remote controlled car-keys, eatables, food packets, water bottles, cigarette lighter, match boxes, knives and arms.
