Security beefed up in winter capital
Jammu, Nov 2: With the countdown beginning for opening of civil secretariat and other move offices in Jammu, the police department has deployed half a dozen additional companies in the city and its peripheries to strengthen the security cover.
Sources in the department said that high-level close door meetings were being held to finalize the deployments, particularly at the vulnerable points.
“The security cover has been strengthened with enforcement of additional personnel at vital points”, Inspector General of Police, Dilbag Singh told Greater Kashmir.
He informed that security arrangements would be finalized tomorrow after a security review of the city and accordingly if some changes were required the same will be made.
When asked about threats of protests on the opening of Durbar move, he said, “Peaceful protests are welcome as these are a part of democratic setup and everybody has a right to highlight demands, but if any group indulges in ransacking of public property or create hurdles in the functioning of government, the department is fully prepared to deal with such situation”.
