From ground to social media, cops on high alert

Abhay SinghNew Delhi: From ground policing to social media monitoring, Delhi Police said they have beefed up security across all fields, ahead of the release 'Padmaavat' on Thursday.
Police on Wednesday said meetings were held with owners of cinema halls, who were briefed on safety and security.
Delhi Police Public Relations Officer and DCP Madhur Verma told Millennium Post they have made proper security arrangements.
"We will make sure there is no breach of peace in Delhi. We can tackle any situation and meetings have been held with cinema hall owners. We have briefed them about safety and security measures," he said.
During the meeting, police told the owners to make sure that their CCTV cameras are functional and pointed in the right position.
''We have told them to be in contact with us regularly," said DCP (South East) Chinmoy Biswal, adding that South East Delhi Police have made foolproof security arrangements.
Meanwhile, reports emerged of a protest taking place in Rohini district against the film, with a video doing rounds of social media.
However, DCP (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta said that no vandalism took place in Rohini. "Some people were protesting, but proper action was taken," said the DCP.
When asked if the protestors belonged to Karni Sena, he said there was no evidence suggesting they were member of the right-wing outfit.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police Cyber Cell is keeping a tab on social media regarding the movie to ensure no hate messages are circulated online.
Sources in the Cyber Cell claimed they are monitoring some hashtags related to the movie, including names of the director, actors and fringe group who have been protesting against the movie.
Hashtags are an important element of Twitter, which facilitate round-the-globe search of any trending topic.
''This has been a trend for circulating hate messages. It will take only one hour to tweet more than 10,000 negative posts. There are some auto poster tools, through which one can add several fake accounts, as well as content spinning tools, which change the content in several ways and transfer it to auto poster, from which it is posted in social media," Kislay Chaudhary, cyber
security expert and CEO of Indian Cyber Army, told Millennium Post.
