New Delhi : A contingent of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has been deployed in the Parliament premises to check visitors and goods inside the Parliament House. A total of 140 CISF personnel have taken up positions in the Parliament complex since Monday. According to sources, CISF personnel will check the visitors and their belongings in the Parliament. On the anniversary of the attack on Parliament on December 13 last year, some people entered the House from the audience gallery of Parliament House and spread colored smoke. Meanwhile, these youths also raised slogans. It was after this incident that it was decided to deploy the CISF to check the visitors while reviewing the security of the Parliament.

The session of Parliament is starting from January 31.

According to information, the CISF team is already inspecting the Parliament complex along with other security agencies so that they are ready to take over when the budget session begins on January 31. The CISF will provide airport-like security to the new and old Parliament buildings. Visitors arriving at the Parliament House and their luggage will be checked through X-ray machines and hand detectors. Even shoe scanning has been arranged. Heavy jackets and belts will be placed on trays and passed through.

Earlier, security was handled by people associated with Delhi Police-Parliament Security.

According to Union Home Ministry sources, the CISF will conduct security checks and searches of visitors to the Parliament. Earlier, people associated with Delhi Police and Parliament security were handling the security at the gate. But on December 13, 2023, during the winter session of Parliament, two people entered the House from the audience gallery. These people had released yellow smoke inside the Parliament. Before the men could do anything else, some MPs present in the parliament caught the two and handed them over to the security personnel. The names of these two accused are Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D. After this incident, the Home Ministry decided to further strengthen the security of the Parliament and the responsibility of checking the visitors has been entrusted to the CISF.
