"People are requested to cooperate with police at naka and frisking points. Do not think of it as harassment by police," it said. The advisory said that from the security point of view, it is requested to all the school managements in the district to not allow any stranger into the premises, and give necessary precautionary instructions to students.

People are also requested to take preventive actions like not touching any abandoned object, and informing the police immediately on seeing any suspicious people and object or material. "If you have any information about any anti-national and anti-social elements, please contact your nearest police station or dial 100 which is available round-the-clock," the advisory said.

It asked passengers travelling in vehicles to be alert while tavelling and going at crowded places like — bus stand, railway station, shopping complex, malls, and hospitals. The advisory said that all the station house officers and in-charge police posts have been directed to remain present in their respective jurisdiction round-the-clock.

The in-charge border police posts have been directed to maintain a vigil on infiltration routes used by anti-national elements in the past, it said. Village defence committee members, numberdars and chowkidars are directed to cooperate with police while performing their duties for safety and security, especially in view of the forthcoming Republic Day and ceasefire violation by Pakistan on the International Border and the Line of Control.
