LAHORE: Punjab Rangers have become fully active in Lahore after the civil military force was deployed in the province in wake of mounting terror threat hovering over the skies of provincial capital apparently due to the PSL final.
Punjab Rangers have launched snap-checking at the entry and exit points of the provincial metropolis.
The move comes days after the Interior Ministry approved, at least for 60 days, the employment of paratroopers in the Punjab province under Section II and IV of the Anti-Terrorism Act.
The spate of suicide attacks this month prompted authorities to throw a massive security blanket in urban parts of the country, with deployment of Pakistan Rangers (Punjab) in the most populated province.
Security forces, as part of the latest anti-operation codenamed as Radd-ul-Fasaad are also conducting combing operations to hunt down terror suspects across the country.
Rangers personnel yesterday started strict security checking at the entry points of Lahore.
