Police inspect Eden's security for IPL

Kolkata, March 28 : Kolkata police Thursday inspected security measures at the Eden Gardens for the upcoming Indian Premier League and expressed satisfaction at the arrangements.

"We inspected the security arrangements here and also met the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) officials. The security arrangements are at place and we will take a final call after the final inspection March 30," said Joint Commissioner of Police Jawed Shamim.

Police also inspected the venue operation centre (VOC) which during the last edition had collapsed injuring two people after a thunder storm hit the stadium during Kolkata Knight Rider's (KKR) match against the now defunct Deccan Chargers.

"We had asked the CAB to concretise the VOC and we are satisfied by the way it has been constructed. We also looked at arrangements of evacuation of the crowd in case of any emergency," added Shamim.

Meanwhile the tickets from counters for the IPL matches at the Eden began Thursday.

"The ticket sale from the counters began today and already there is a huge demand for them," said CAB joint secretary Subir Ganguly.
