Security of parliament house beefed up



In the wake of the current wave of terrorism in the country, the federal government has strengthened the security of the Parliament House by deploying Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel.

According to details, the capital police have banned the entry of unauthorized people into the premises of Parliament House.

Moreover, all scheduled meetings of standing committees have been postponed for an indefinite period.

The security was beefed up after a suicide attack in Islamabad which claimed the life of a policeman and injured four fellow cops. The slain officer was identified as Head Constable Adeel Hussain. Recently, the Islamabad police issued a special security plan amid possible threat of a terrorist attack following the suicide bombing in the I-10 Sector. According to the security plan unveiled by Capital police, temporary security check posts have been established at 25 different locations in Islamabad while Safe City cameras will record Red Zone entrances. The Islamabad police have advised citizens to carry their identification documents and use excise office issued number plates on vehicles.—INP
