Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Gwalior on Sunday to attend a two-day top-level police conference, starting today, at the Border Security Force (BSF) Academy at Tekanpur, according to media reports.

Modi later tweeted about his arrival at the annual conference of DGPs and IGPs across the country.

An official release said that the "Annual Conference of Director General of Police and Inspector General of Police of states" is an event where top police officers share and discuss security related issues.

"During the last meeting, issues such as cross-border terrorism and radicalisation were discussed in detail. The prime minister emphasised the importance of leadership, soft skills and collective training. He specifically mentioned the importance of technology and human interface for the police force," the release stated.
