PESHAWAR: To avert any mismanagement or violence during re-polling, a high-level meeting of regional police officers was held at Central Police Office in Peshawar on Monday.

According to a handout, the meeting was presided over by K-P IGP Nasir Khan Durrani. He directed the participants to create a large-enough security zone outside each polling station. Irrelevant persons and vehicles would not be allowed in said security zones.

Durrani said those who try to create trouble on the day would be put behind bars without any discrimination. The IGP also directed officials to make videos, where possible, of any untoward incident so it could be used as evidence against those who attempt to take the law into their hands.

For polling stations and areas considered sensitive, the IGP said DSPs should be sent to monitor the vulnerable areas. Snap-checking at various places like hotels and bus stops has also been ordered.
