Indore: Security arrangements have been tightened ahead of the third One Day International match at the Holkar Stadium here. The match will be played between India and Australia on Sunday.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Hari Narayan Chari Mishra said, “All roads passing towards the stadium will be closed from 1200 hours until the match ends.”
Besides the locals, a large number of outsiders have begun arriving to watch the ODI.
Besides 2,000 policemen, two officers of the rank of DIG and Superintendent of Police had been deployed.
Mishra said, “A lot of people who couldn’t get tickets were making efforts since Saturday to get one. Some people tried to take advantage of the situation by trying to sell some colourful tickets bearing striking resemblance to the tickets of the match.”
He said five persons had been put behind the bars in this regard.
