Security forces have increased security in Jammu after the declaration of high alert in the state ahead of Independence Day.
The action was taken in light of recent events and alerts conveyed to the police.
On Friday, a search operation was launched in Kunjwani area after a rumour on social media about presence of militants at Carmel Convent School. The school was evacuated and the area was probed thoroughly.
“These kinds of inputs have to be taken seriously either to falsify them or to react to them in case it happens to be true,” IG Danesh Rana said.
“We have already sounded high alert in the whole province in view of 15th August security arrangements. There are certain inputs which suggest that terrorists might try to infiltrate from IB specially through Kathua & Hiranagar sectors,” he added.
