"It is a matter of pride for us that SIS India has been chosen for providing its services for such a huge event. It is a matter of pride for Bihar and entire India", the release quoted its founder and BJP Rajya Sabha member Ravindra Kishore Sinha as saying.
"In view of the mammoth scale of the international sporting event, the company plans to deploy around 4500 security officers, besides installation of hundreds of cameras, bollards, X-Ray machines and walkie talkies at the venues", it said.
Set up in the 1980s in Patna, SIS India is today one of the leading private security providers in the country. It operates through 300 branches and employs nearly two lakh security personnel, the release added.
