“On the occasion of Independence Day, more than 10,000 police personnel will be deployed in different roles across the Red Fort and the routes leading to the venue. We have made flawless and foolproof security arrangements for the day,” Special commissioner of police (law and order) Dependra Pathak was quoted by news agency PTI.

Right before Independence Day, a force of 70 to 75 personnel comprising 5,000 paramilitary and police personnel, besides the security wing and the National Security Guard of the Delhi Police, was deployed near Red Fort in North Delhi.
