LAHORE: (APP) Over 7,000 policemen including 35 DSPs and 84 SHOs would perform security duty under the supervision of 12 SPs in connection with Pakistan Super League (PSL) second edition final match on March 5 at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

A spokesman for the police said that foolproof security measures have been planned for the event. He said that nobody would be allowed to enter the venue without original CNIC and body search would be ensured at four points, whereas the electronic devices would also be used for biometric identification, he added.

"Morale of policemen is high and we are committed to securing and providing peaceful entertainment to Lahorites," the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, DIG Operations Dr Haider Ashraf visited Gaddafi Stadium to review security arrangements.
