Ahead of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's visit to Kolkata on May 7, the Writers' Buildings, where she is scheduled to meet Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has turned into a virtual fortress. The American Centre officials are yet to confirm the time of Clinton's arrival from Dhaka on Sunday and her programmes in Kolkata. Earlier, Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh chaired a high-level meeting on security that was attended by Commissioner of Kolkata Police R K Pachnanda.
As part of the security layout, sources said, the central gate entry point of the state secretariat could be closed, and the movement of journalists, officials and ministers will be restricted.
A metal detector is likely to be installed at the press corner. Already, two teams of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation have over the past two days studied the security aspects of the Writers' as well as the Raj Bhavan.
