The CCTV will be installed on check posts and Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) staff will be deputed. This tight security arrangement will be there for a year, he added.

Speaking about the progress of investigation of BJP activist Praveen Kumar Nettare murder case, he said, the police have successfully detected who is behind his murder. Information is already gathered on who carried out murder, who conspired and planned and they will be arrested soon, he said.

A decision will be taken on when to hand over the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). However, before handing over the case, Karnataka police will arrest all accused persons, he said.
