Kolkata: The Election Commission of India (ECI) has decided to beef up security in Kolkata and neighbouring districts of North and South 24 Parganas, considering that these areas are more sensitive than several others, an official said on Monday.
The security personnel are now engaged in area domination and confidence building exercises ahead of the assembly polls in the state.
For South 24 Parganas, six companies of CAPF were allotted to three police districts of Baruipur, Sundarban and Diamond Harbour, the official said.
The ECI has decided to reduce the number of CAPF in Purulia and Jhargram districts to five companies each.
Four companies of CAPF will also be taken out from Darjeeling district which will have only two companies, he added.
