The police on Tuesday tightened security at key locations such as bus stand and railway station. The police checked the luggage of passengers at both the places and searched buses with the help of sniffer dogs as well. Though the city police officers termed it as a routine checking, but it was learnt that the cops had gone on alert after the attack in Udhampur on Monday.

The police also scanned the premises of the bus stand complex and surrounding areas and the railway platform.

Police commissioner Amar Singh Chahal said, “This is routine checking. For general alertness and keeping a check on the anti- social elements, we do make such checks in routine.”

The police Commissioner also said that nakas were put up in the outer ring of the city and efforts were being made to keep a close watch on notorious elements. On Monday, the police parties had searched flats in the Maqboolpura area.
