The bench had observed that the immediate deployment of trained police personnel be made at the court premises.
The bench said that trained police officers assigned to non-professional and administrative duties should be retrieved forthwith for security duties in the court premises, adding that such induction would foster command, and energise and train the slack police personnel already posted there.
