Jammu: Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Jammu Zone, Mukesh Singh Friday said that Police had made elaborate arrangements for the upcoming Amarnath yatra with the deployment of the required number of security forces.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, he said, “To avert the possible terror threat we have made deployments based on a plan for the safety and security of the yatris.”
Singh said that they had put in place security, langer (community kitchens) locations, and traffic movement-related plans.
He said that the security forces, especially the J&K Police had heightened their security vigil in Jammu city and its adjoining areas and on the highways.
“J&K Police has started a movement against the suspected persons regarding the terror activities and a strict eye is being kept on such activities,” Singh said. “We will conduct the yatra successfully and in a better manner.”
