Security beefed-up, searches in City centre
Srinagar, Apr 3: Following inputs of militant attacks, the security arrangements in the City have been beefed up. Police is using the human as well as electronic surveillance to keep an eye on these areas, which have witnessed a spate of attacks in the recent past.
The police and paramilitary CRPF troopers on Saturday cordoned off the City centre areas including Lal Chowk, Polo view and Budshah Chowk.
Policemen made civilians stand in queues and asked them to produce their identity cards. They thoroughly frisked them and searched their belonging before letting them off.
They also stopped the private vehicles and the public transport buses bringing down passengers for checks.
Police said it had inputs about the “suspicious movement” in the area.
“The searches were conducted because we had got the inputs suggesting suspicious movements,” senior superintendent of police, Srinagar, Javid Riyaz Bedar told Greater Kashmir.
“We have increased the human surveillance. The area is also being monitored electronically through close circuit cameras,” the SSP said.
He said the electronic surveillance system in the coming days would be upgraded in City centre and other civil line areas.
Last month, a civilian was killed and four others, including two, CRPF troopers were injured when militants opened fire on troopers at Koker Bazar.
