Security further beefed up in Kashmir, Jammu

Multiple checkpoints and roadblocks, the officer said, have been erected across Srinagar. “The number of bulletproof mobile bunker vehicles deployed at sensitive places has also been increased and the high-tech CCTV surveillance enhanced,” he said, adding that some additional companies of paramilitary forces have been deployed in Srinagar alone. “This came after a security review was undertaken post which the decision to deploy more security personnel in Srinagar was taken,” the officer said.

“The entire top brass of the security grid is currently in Kashmir,” the officer said, adding that the situation is being monitored closely.
