Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Jan 25: A day before the Republic Day, in Srinagar, summer capital of union territory of Jammu & Kashmir security was beefed up in order to ensure that the day passes off peacefully without any untoward incident.
In the Lal Chowk and other important areas of the Srinagar city security was taken to the optimum level with police and paramilitary forces personnel maintaining a strict vigil on the main roads and streets. Barricades have been erected at many places so as to check the movement of people and vehicles.
In some of the areas security forces personnel pressed into service sniffer dogs in order to carry out checking of the vehicles especially the auto-rickshaws. The people passing through the city centre were asked to prove their identity. People wearing pheran were under scanner and they were asked to lift their pheran before the checking could be carried out.
At the same time the frisking was also intensified at various places falling in the outskirts of Srinagar district and other districts of Kashmir. Police and security forces have laid several checkpoints to ensure smooth celebrations on the occasion of Republic Day. The security has been beefed up from last couple of days especially after Friday’s grenade attack at SafaKadal in downtown Srinagar. A civilian and two CRPF personnel were injured in the grenade attack.
Reports said that that police have erected barricades at various places during which pedestrians as well as the commuters were being thoroughly frisked before being allowed to move ahead. Additional placement of police and security forces has been made in order to ensure that there is no untoward incident on Saturday.
As the main function is being held at Sher-i-Kashmir Cricket Stadium in Sonwar, all the entry and exit points to the venue are under close security vigil. The movement of vehicles towards the venue has virtually been suspended with only security vehicles being allowed to move near the cricket stadium.
Due to the security reasons the traffic movement from Sonwarupto Ram MunshiBagh Road stretch including Dalgate-Ram MunshiBagh, Radio Kashmir-Ram MunshiBagh and Gupkar-Ram MunshiBagh will remain suspended on January 26 from early morning hoursupto 1400 hours.
The officials have asked the motorists intending to travel from South Kashmir-PanthaChowk towards City Centre to adopt Bypass road stretch and vice versa. Similarly the motorists intending to travel South Kashmir from City Centre and Downtown areas have been asked to adopt Batmaloo-Tengpora-Bypass or Rambagh-Natipora road stretch to reach PanthaChowk.
Farooq Khan, advisor to Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu would be chief guest at the Republic Day parade at the Sher-i-Kashmir Cricket Stadium. Khan would hoist the tri-colour and take salute on the parade. This will be first Republic Day in the union territory of Jammu & Kashmir as the erstwhile state was bifurcated into two union territories Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
