“There are more than 5,000 masjids in the city which have been categorised according to sensitivity. There are 218 masjids of category A, 775 masjids of category B and 4,000 masjids of category C,” Kamyana revealed. Eid prayers would be performed at 190 open places in the city, which would also be provided complete security, he added.

The CCPO added that search and sweep operations, snap checking, biometric verification and other measures would be adopted to avoid any untoward situation.

Citizens will be provided three layers of security through checking mechanisms at mosques, parks and other public places, he said. Metal detectors and walkthrough gates along with CCTV cameras would be used for checking and monitoring purposes. Snipers would be deployed on roofs of buildings to keep an eye on any possible suspects or suspicious activity.

Strict action would be taken against persons involved in aerial firing, one wheeling and hooliganism on Chand Raat and Eid, Kamyana said.

All the vehicles, motorbikes and persons would be thoroughly checked at exit and entrance points of the city, he said.

“Preventive measures have been adopted against anti-social elements, and their data has been updated to stop such culprits to disturb the peace of the city,” he added.

The CCPO hoped that citizens would play a pivotal role and provide full support to Lahore Police to ensure peace in the city during the Eid festivities.
