1. 15000 CCTV Cameras Installed.

According to sources Delhi will Have 15000 cctv cameras. These aren’t the kind of CCTVs you see in an ATM, but are equipped with 36x optical zoom ability so that they can zoom in on a potential terrorist’s nose hair.

2. American security officials remind us that we need lighting and cops on the roads.

US security officials asked Delhi Police to light up the central ridge opposite the hotel. There will also be cops posted at the ridge area. 

3. 500 US secret service agents.

So it’ll feel like this:

4. Even flowerpots aren't safe!

After input from Intelligence agencies that bombs could be hidden anyplace, Special Cell and Crime Branch officers have been asked to be alert about the flower pots around Rajpath and India Gate, 24/7. 


5. Aggressive threat analysis.

There’s a lot at stake. According to a report in the Mail Today, there are threats coming in everyday against both Modi and Obama, and agencies are hard at work analyzing the gigantic amounts of data.

6. American invasion of the Maurya Sheraton.

According to an unnamed senior police officer who spoke to Reuters, “Obama’s security team will take over ITC Maurya Sheraton Hotel from January 20 and seal the place till the President’s departure.”


7. Incredibly high level of planning involved.

The American team:
1. FBI
2. CIA
3. NSA

While India is putting together the:
1. Delhi Police
2. Central Industrial Security Force
3. Intelligence Bureau
4. Air traffic controllers
All this for a security plan that covers both on-ground and air security.


8. Snipers, commandoes and other awesome stuff.

On ground forces will feature 10,000 paramilitary troopers and an 80,000-member-strong Delhi Police, and we don’t know how many American forces. There also might be snipers prearranged across Delhi's buildings.

9. President’s Companions.

According to a Daily Mail report, the following are coming to Delhi:
6 aircrafts, carrying security staff
President’s cavalcade, with 30 cars. One of them might be the Cadillac One, among the world’s most high tech cars. 
Marine One helicopters
Air Force One, Obama’s plane – equipped to protect Obama even from nuclear attack

10. The CISF is going to try to trick its own men to see how good they are!

The CISF has put together a decoy team that will attempt to enter and fly out of India with fake documents. Playing as regular passengers, this crack team will hit airports across India. This is because security arrangements at Delhi airport are low, despite specific alerts from the Intelligence Bureau.
What's really scary is that they just succeeded. “Recently, the decoy team managed to get entry with a fake e-ticket, exposing loopholes in the security of Delhi airport ahead of Obama’s visit. The team members didn’t stop there and tried to fly with fake boarding passes but a CISF official realized that the passes were fake and caught them.” a source told the Daily Mail.
