The IGP asked them to ensure maximum security for the president, the prime minister, other important persons and diplomats during the National Mourning Day events and their movements.

Benazir also asked the police officials to keep vigilance on the National Mourning Day events so that no one can create chaos and no rumour can be spread through social media.

"We have to take adequate precautions and security measures based on intelligence reports about militants and banned militant outfits as well as other terrorists," he added.
