More forces arriving in BTAD

Additional Director general police AP Rawat is assessing the law and order situation in BTAD where 11 people were killed and 7 others including a newsman sustained injury in a fresh orgy of violence during the last 24 hours.

Apart from deploying more security, the Centre has agreed to rush ten more CRPF companies to deal with the situation.

Security forces are spreading tentacles to flush out the trouble mongers. Checking of vehicles and street patrolling have been intensified in some selected pockets. Security would be more tightened as soon as the extra forces are arrived in the BTAD areas.

Messages of condemnation are pouring in from across the state where people of all sections are appealed to remain united to defeat the inimical forces.
