Jalandhar, August 14

The Jalandhar Commissionerate Police has put in place an elaborate security arrangement for the smooth conduct of the Independence Day celebrations tomorrow at the local Guru Gobind Singh Stadium. Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar who held a review meeting with police officials here on Friday for finalising security arrangements, said the commissionerate police was fully prepared with a foolproof security system for the I-day functions in the city. He said security had already been beefed up and the entire area around the venue of the main event had been cordoned off by the police. Around 1,000 police personnel had been deployed to keep a strict vigil on activities in the city. The Commissioner of Police said CCTV cameras had been installed at the venue for keeping a regular check in and around the stadium. Likewise, he said security had also been enhanced to check any type of anti-social activity. Bhullar said a round-the-clock vigil was being kept for which various police patrolling parties had been set up. Senior officials had been instructed to conduct night domination to keep a vigil on the law and order situation. He said a control room had been set up at the stadium by them to regularly monitor the situation. TNS
