Following reports of Agnipath protests reaching this part of Malwa, the administration has beefed up security in the region with special focus on safety of railway stations situated on the Ludhiana-Dhuri rail tracks.

Though security of railway stations and other installations of the Railways are entrusted with the Government Railway Police (GRP), the district police are also leaving no stone unturned to keep a vigil in the region.
