Srinagar: Ahead of 65th Independence Day, police in Jammu & Kashmir state have left no stone unturned in stepping up security across the region, deploying soldiers in sensitive areas to thwart any militant strike.

India celebrates the 64th anniversary of independence from British rule on Monday, a day traditionally marked by threats by separatist and militants.

A three-tier security blanket has been thrown around Bakshi stadium, the main venue for the Independence Day celebration in Jammu and Kashmir, to thwart any attempt by militants to carry out a strike, officials said.

They said although the deployment of the security personnel this year is not as visible as in earlier years, the security grid is relying on modern gadgetry like closed circuit TV cameras and human intelligence to ensure a peaceful Independence Day.

All Parties of Hurriyat Conference headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has called for a general strike on Monday to impress upon the world community the gravity of the situation in Kashmir.

The security forces along the Line of Control as well as inside the Valley have been put on high alert following inputs about a possible militant attack to disrupt the celebrations, a senior official said.
The troops along the LoC have been directed to remain vigilant as army apprehends that militants might try to infiltrate into this side to carry out attacks on security forces and civilians.

Local police have intensified patrolling and field surveillance in the hilly and remote areas of the state as well as densely populated areas including winter capital Jammu.
In R.S Pura district, security forces have stepped up vigil to check infiltration.
Barbed wires have been placed on the border fence, while the area is under constant watch of armed guards.
Pickets have been set up and hundreds of police swarmed the streets of summer capital Srinagar.
