Pathankot: Security was bolstered in Pathankot district of Punjab in the wake of a fidayeen attack on an Army camp in Jammu in which two junior commissioned officers (JCOs) were killed.
“Special police check posts were put up to thwart any attempt by anti-social elements to disturb peace. A tight vigil is being maintained,” Pathankot SSP Vivek Sheel Soni said.
Vehicles going towards and coming from Jammu and Kashmir were being checked thoroughly at a check post put up at Madhopur on the Pathankot-Jammu highway, said SHO, Sujanpur, Iqbal Singh.
The district shares border with Pakistan. The Pathankot airbase station had witnessed a militant attack in 2016.
Dinanagar in adjoining Gurdaspur district was targeted by militants on July 27, 2015.
