The police have beefed up security in the district on the eve of the 31st anniversary of Operation Bluestar. Hundreds of police personnel and senior officials participated in a flag march taken out across the city.

The police have made heavy security arrangements at all entry and exit points to the city, besides laying special check-posts across the district to restrict entry of any anti-social elements.

At several places, the police could be seen carrying out extensive checking of vehicles to avoid any untoward incident. The police control-room (PCR) surveillance has been enhanced in sensitive areas, especially in the interiors areas in the city.

Senior officials said that the police force at all police stations across the district had been put on alert to maintain peace and ensure law and order situation on the occasion.

Meanwhile, the police are keeping a close watch on various Sikh organisations, which are planning to hold protest marches to commemorate the anniversary of Operation Bluestar.
