Security Beefed Up Outside US Embassy in Delhi Amid Vote Counting in States

The closely-watched US elections were held on 3 November. Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden took on his Republican incumbent, US President Donald Trump; 270 electoral college votes are needed to win the presidential election in US.

Delhi Police on Wednesday increased security outside the US embassy amid the counting of votes in the American states.

A senior police official told Sputnik that it has been done as a safety measure to avoid any unlawful activity around the area.

“The elections in the US are closely watched by people in India and there are chances of protests around the US embassy. To avoid any unlawful activities, we have deployed around 30-40 extra personnel around the area as precautionary measures,” the official said.
