Security has been beefed up across Kashmir ahead of Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s maiden visit to the Valley after the abrogation of Article 370 on Saturday, officials said.
They said a thick security cover has been thrown around the BJP office at Jawahar Nagar in the city where Shah is likely to pay a visit.
Similarly, roads leading to Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) have been made off-limits for three days from Saturday as the Union home minister is expected to attend an event there, they added.
The officials said additional deployment of security forces has been made across the valley, especially in Srinagar.
Bunkers manned by paramilitary CRPF have come up in several areas of the city as well in other parts of the valley, the officials said.
