JAMMU, Aug 14: Tight security arrangements were put in place on Tuesday across Jammu division on the eve of Independence Day.
“Security has been strengthened at all vital installations, including government buildings and religious places, to maintain a tight vigil to ensure a peaceful and violence free Independence Day,” officials said today. While in Jammu and adjoining areas three-tier security arrangements were in place, fool-proof security arrangements were made in all district headquarters and major towns in the division.
“Continuous and random frisking of vehicles is going on as part of the security plan across the division. Cooperation from civilians travelling in any vehicle will not only lead to completion of frisking process of vehicles in shortest possible time but will also strengthen the relations between civilians and the force personnel who are standing on the roads to perform their duties," the officials added.
In border districts of Rajouri and Poonch also, the security forces were put on full alert in the wake of terror threats. “Security measures have been taken for the safety of the people and to ensure a peaceful Independence Day. However at certain places some people misbehaved with policemen and paramilitary personnel deployed on check-points. An action will be initiated against such persons who create nuisance on check-points,” said Senior Superintendent of Police (Rajouri) Yougal Manhas in an advisory issued here.
The police through special advisories have appealed to people to inform security forces in case they see any suspicious person or object. Meanwhile, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Railways, S S Biloria said round-the-clock vigil was being maintained given the heavy rush of people at the railway stations.
“All the tracks and railway platforms are under tight surveillance, while quick reaction teams have also been deployed to meet any eventuality,” he said.
