A day after four spectators, were held for allegedly passing racist comments against Australian players at the Wankhede Stadium, the city police today said they would be extra vigilant.

The four youngsters, who were booked under Section 110 of the Bombay Police Act (behaving indecently in public), were immediately released after paying a fine of Rs 1,200 each as per the provisions of law.

"They are not criminals and were warned to behave properly. We took action against them after receiving complaints and released them immediately," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone I) Brijesh Singh said.

Singh said that karate-trained personnel will be kept in the stands of 30,000 capacity Brabourne Stadium where the T20 match is to be played on Saturday. "People come there to enjoy the match and they should do so without insulting anyone," Singh said.

Meanwhile, he added that the security will be tight for the match and additional personnel from the SRPF, CRPF, police commandos and quick reaction team will be roped in.
