Bengaluru Police Commissioner  T Sunil Kumar has  restricted all kinds of public processions on Friday  to prevent untoward incidents on the occasion of  Tipu Jayanti.

Kumar said: "To make Tipu Jayanti peaceful, a circular has been issued restricting all kinds of public processions on Friday. All security arrangements will be made to maintain the law and order in the city."

As many as 13,000 policemen, along with personnel of the  Garud Commando Force, 30 platoons of  the  Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) and 20 platoons of the  City Armed Reserve (CAR), will be deployed in sensitive and hypersensitive areas, he added.
