Additional number of security forces personnel have been deployed in bazaars, railway station, parks and other public places. They were keeping constant vigil on every mover. Additional strength has been posted at the trains running between and other parts of the country. They would check every passenger boarding the trains in a bid to secure lives of travelling people. A ban is also under consideration on demonstrations at T&T Chowk and Hockey chowk.
