RAWALPINDI: Trade bodies on Tuesday urged the district administration to enhance security around all markets as Eid shopping is gaining momentum with each passing day. Markazi Anjuman-e-Tajran President Sharjeel Mir, speaking to the media said as Ramazan ul Mubarak is going to enter into its second  Ashra, everyone especially women along with their children are rushing towards bazaars for buying  clothes, shoes and other items. Expressing dissatisfaction over the security arrangements, he said the deployment of police personnel is insufficient. He said police should depute plainclothesmen in markets at rush hours to keep  watch over suspicious activities and to avoid any untoward incident.
