In view of recent militant attacks security in and around the Assembly has been increased with elaborate security arrangements made by the government to prevent any untoward incident during the Assembly Session beginning from today.
A senior government official wishing not to be named told KNS that a three-tier security has been put in place to prevent any militant attack during the 7-day Assembly session. “Tight security arrangements have been made in entire city including the areas in and around the Assembly complex to avoid any untoward incident. Additional deployment of personnel from police and para-military forces have been made to keep ‘trouble-makers away and ensure peaceful session,” he said.
“Number of trained police constables will be posted in and around Assembly as a backup to the marshals to counter any untoward incident. A separate passage will be kept for the VVIPs while others would be allowed only after frisking and passing through the metal detectors.
Meanwhile well informed sources told KNS that the entire security apparatus in the city has been geared up in view of the inputs from the intelligence agencies that militants may sneak into the city. “Special instructions have been issued to the policemen and paramilitary forces to keep check on unregistered vehicles, private vehicles and a drive against two-wheelers have also been launched to ensure that militants are not able to breach the security ring.”
