High Alert In J&K Ahead Of I-Day

Srinagar: A day after five militants escaped an encounter site after killing one cop and injuring three others in Batamaloo area of Srinagar, authorities said they have sounded a high alert in the valley to ensure peaceful Independence Day celebration.

The official function will be held at Sher-i-Kashmir stadium in the high-security zone at Sonwar instead of the traditional Bakshi stadium.

The authorities may have changed the venue, keeping in mind security threat, sources said adding that the “change of venue did not take place even during the height of militancy in the early 90s.”
