Senior Superintendent of Police, Karaikal District, A K Gawas, had convened a meeting of police officers of Karaikal, Nagapattinam and Tiruvarur districts here on Wednesday evening to discuss the security measures in border areas in connection with the May 16 assembly polls in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

Nagapattinam SP D Kannan and top officials from the three districts attended the meeting.

Gawas said officers of the three districts have decided to jointly conduct checking operations in border areas.

"It has been decided to have a strict check over the movement of cash, illegal arms, ammunition, explosives, weaponry and illegal trade of alcohol. Moreover, such checking at the borders will prevent movement of cash, freebies and liquor which could be used to induce the voters during the elections," he said.

Wine shops located in the border areas and anti-social elements residing near the borders would be identified and monitored, he told reporters after the meeting.

The officers also discussed ways for better co-ordination and co-operation between the officers of the two
states and modes for quick dissemination and sharing of information and intelligence, he added.
