Unprecedented security for Obama on Jan 26

New Delhi, Jan 24 (IBNS) As American President Barack Obama left a US airbase on Saturday, security agencies in India were busy working on the last minute detail for a 'never seen before' ground-to-air security arrangement.
As Obama and Prime Minister Modi share the dais on January 26, Delhi turns into an impregnable fortress, far surpassing the arrangements made on any Republic Day engaging snipers to sniffer dogs.
 
The army, police, para military forces, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) will be working in tandem with the US intelligence agnecy CIA and Navy Seals for foolproof security.
 
Reports said for the first time the  Rajpath and India gate would remain shut on January 26 while a no-fly zone within a radius of 400 km of the venue of Rajpath has been imposed for the day, barring operation of flights in Delhi and several adjoining areas.
 
The US authorities had earlier demanded a no-fly zone around Rajpath which would have barred the traditional fly past by the Indian Air force. The Indian authorities managed to stick to their ground by saying that the fly past would be for only 10 minutes.
 
Reports said altogether 71 high rise buildings in the vicinity of Rajpath would be partly or completely shut down for this year's Republic Day celebrations.
 
The buildings will go  under the command of security personnel and snipers will take position on rooftops.
 
The nearby government buildings like  North and South Blocks, Rail Bhavan, Krishi Bhavan, Shastri Bhavan, Vayu Bhavan, Udyog Bhavan, Nirman Bhavan, and Vigyan Bhavan will be shut by 25 January to be occupied by security personnel.
