Srinagar/UNI: Ahead of the Republic Day, security has been beefed up across Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, with the police and paramilitary forces checking vehicles and intensifying patrolling in sensitive areas.

In the city centre Lal Chowk, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel stopped and checked vehicles and frisked the motorists. Mobile security checks came up across the city roads.

In Kashmir, the main Republic Day function will be held at Cricket Stadium at Sonwar in Srinagar.

A security officer said they have already started sanitizing the area around the stadium. “For the past few days, there have been many cordon and search operations around the stadium,” he said.

In the past few days, Srinagar witnessed two grenade attacks that left a policeman and a civilian wounded.

Last week, Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar directed the officers to make all necessary arrangements in connection with the January 26 event.

Security measures have also been tightened in various districts in Kashmir.
