On Monday, the Uttar Pradesh police chief warned of strict actions against individuals plotting disruptions at counting centers on June 4.

In a joint press conference with Additional Chief Secretary Home Deepak Kumar, Director General of Police Prashant Kumar revealed that preliminary intelligence suggests concerted efforts to gather people at these centers. These individuals, whose names are known to authorities, will be addressed 'at the right time,' Kumar stated.

Preventive measures have been reinforced, echoing steps taken during the 2022 assembly elections. Surveillance is stringent with local intelligence units on high alert and 24-hour monitoring of social media activities. Central paramilitary forces aid local police, forming a three-tier security structure to safeguard the counting process. Despite the heatwave, elections shall proceed smoothly under Section 144 of CrPC and ongoing CCTV surveillance.
