Security tightened in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of Republic Day

 

Amid intelligence inputs about presence of terrorists across the border, a multi-layered security apparatus has been put in place to ensure peaceful Republic Day celebrations in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said, reports PTI.

Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor G C Murmu will take the salute at the Maulana Azad Stadium here, the main venue of the Republic Day function in the newly created Union Territory on January 26, the officials said.

"Jammu has been divided into different sectors and zones and adequate deployment has been made across the region, especially the venue of the main function where anti-sabotage check is going on besides searches in its peripheral areas," Inspector General of Police, Jammu zone, Mukesh Singh said.

In view of reports of infiltration of a group of terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC) in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district early this month, deployments have been made to deal with the threat, he said.
