Jammu, Apr 9: Jammu and Kashmir Police has beefed up security across the state ahead of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s visit to the state on Tuesday. The Home Minister will be arriving here to discuss preparedness of the state police and paramilitary forces ahead of the 'crucial' summer, Amarnath pilgrimage and security situation along the Line of Control.
Issues concerning AFSPA, reducing footprints of paramilitary personnel from urban areas, removal of more CRPF bunkers from Srinagar and clearing more private buildings from occupation of security forces will be discussed among other security-related matters during the review meeting to be chaired by Chidambaram in Jammu.
Official sources said that the state government was expecting some announcement with regard to its proposal seeking enhancement of the wages of Special Police Officers (SPOs).
As per official sources, the Home Minister will be visiting Mata Vaishno Devi to pay his obeisance at the cave shrine immediately after his arrival on Tuesday afternoon. This will be followed with a meeting with Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and a security review meeting with Army, Police, BSF, CRPF and intelligence heads of the state.

Meanwhile, the Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda reviewed the security preparation across the state for the scheduled visit. “The police and paramilitary personnel have been asked to intensify security not only in Jammu but across the state to ensure that the visit passes off peacefully,” sources said.
