The district police chief laid emphasis on better coordination and synergy among all agencies concerned with the security and intelligence to thwart the nefarious designs of anti- national elements, especially during Republic Day celebrations along the international border.

A threadbare discussion, on the present security scenario, took place in the meeting and various security related issues were taken up for discussion.
