Election Commission Senior Secretary Md Alamgir said on Wednesday that 18 polling centres in the capital have been identified as risky, but the number may increase after a detective report.

However, he said the Election Commission has no information about any possibility of untoward incident during the polls. He also said around 40,000 law enforcers will be deployed in the polls.

An 18-member team of law enforcers will be deployed in every risky centre while a 16-member team in each risk-free centre.
