There have been several terror attacks on vital defence and police installations along the national highway in Samba, Kathua and Pathankot during the past two years.

Jain issued these instructions on Wednesday during a security review meeting with principals of private schools of Kathua town and its adjoining areas, especially institutions on the national highway.

The SSP's recommendations to school managements included construction of a boundary wall with adequate height around the parameter of school premises and walls with concertina wire, he said.

The official also recommended deployment of private security guards on entry points and gates and installation of CCTVs at strategic locations.

She said intercom phone should be installed on both gates/office for effective communication. Other measures
included display of important phone numbers like police/ambulance/fire service at conspicuous places and mock
exercises at their institutions.

She also directed school authorities to give special briefing to staff and students on security issues.

Jain agreed to a request by school authorities regarding self defence training for the girls which has been organised in colleges and other institutions.
