Visakhapatnam: A three-tier security system has been arranged in Visakhapatnam for the President's Fleet Review on 21 February and the multinational naval exercise Milan from 25 February to 4 March.

The district administration is expecting four lakh people to witness the multinational exercise, particularly the city parade which is being conducted on the lines of a carnival from Naval Coast Batter to Park Hotel junction on RK Beach on 27 February. The ministry of external affairs has invited several international delegates and invitations have been sent to over 5,000 guests.

"We have deployed 4,000 police personnel to prevent any incidents during these two important events,'' said a senior police officer.

For the city parade, the beach-side of Beach Road is being barricaded with 40 LED screens, and crowd dispersal and traffic management is being arranged, the police said. Four IPS officers will monitor the bandobast on 27 February. The city police chief, Manish Kumar Sinha, has formed committees on bandobast, law and order, traffic, convoy and security arrangements, intelligence gathering, and communication. A control room has been set up to monitor and coordinate the security, the police said.

There will be nine enclosures for guests and 32 for the public at RK Beach. The GVMC has formed 30 approach roads for the event from Naval Coastal Battery to YMCA.

On the lines of the International Fleet Review held in Vizag in 2016, there will be a three-tier security system during PFR and Milan. While the Navy will man the waters, the Coast Guard, Coastal Security Police, and Marcos will monitor the waters from point to point.
