As India is gearing up to host a tourism working group meeting in Srinagar – the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir – in May, the country is tightening its security measures across the place. Among the slew of security measures, special highway patrolling teams will be deployed at major junctions along the major roads in Srinagar. Also anti-drone technology will be installed.
Delegates from almost all countries of G20, except China, are scheduled to attend the meeting on Working Group of Tourism in Srinagar on May 23, official sources said.
The delegates will be taken to major tourist places for sightseeing. A senior police officer disclosed that among the security measures being finalised ahead of the G20 meeting in Srinagar, high-end drones and CCTV cameras will be used to keep the surveillance to avoid any untoward incident.
Paramilitary forces from the hinterland will also be relocated and deployed in Srinagar, Gulmarg, Baramulla and other places where G20 delegates will visit to ensure a peaceful atmosphere.
A proposal to replace the traditional bunkers with Smart bunkers in the city is also being considered. All bunkers at vital locations are being relocated and some work has been already done in this regard.
