In Photos | Heightened Security Ahead Of R-Day In Kashmir

A multi-layered security arrangement was put in place on Tuesday to secure the venue of the main Republic Day function in Kashmir which is being held at the Sher-e-Kashmir cricket stadium in J&K's Srinagar city.

All the high rise buildings around the parade venue have been taken over by sharpshooters of the forces personnel.

Policemen in civvies have been deployed around the venue to keep a close watch on any suspicious movement.

Makeshift drop gates, mobile checkposts, sniffer dogs and area domination exercises by the security forces are some of the major arrangements visible on the ground.

Drones have been deployed to provide aerial surveillance to the forces personnel.
