Incidentally, Thackeray will be meeting Modi for the first time after the Shiv Sena chief, a former BJP ally, was sworn in as chief minister.

The three-day meet will see top officials from the police forces of states, central investigative and intelligence agencies and Central Armed Police Forces coming together and discussing internal security-related issues.

It will take place on the campus of the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) in the Pashan area of the city.

"The Ministry of Home Affairs organizes the conference every year. Earlier it was organized in Delhi, but after PM Modi became prime minister, it is being held in different cities every year," the senior police official said.

Last year the conference was held at Kevadia in Gujarat, near the Statue of Unity.
