Jahnavi, ACPs of all sub-divisions and DCF Mysuru Circle Dr. K.N. Basavaraju.

The SPG authorities have sought a report on the arrangements made for the Prime Minister’s minute to minute programme in city and the Police are expected to prepare the report, complying with the instructions issued from time to time from SPG, after discussing with City Police Commissioner B. Ramesh, it is said.
