NEW DELHI: An additional hundred companies of Central Armed Police (paramilitary) Forces were airlifted to Srinagar early on Saturday to boost security set-up.
This security build up has come after the local police detained JKLF chief Yasin Malik and arrested dozens of other Jamaat-e-Islami workers in the Valley on Friday night.
The fresh deployment includes 45 companies of the CRPF, 35 of the BSF and ten each of the 10 SSB, and the ITBP.
Police have so far not commented on the detentions of the Jamaat-e-Islami leaders, but sources said that it was in view of the expected protests in view of Supreme Court hearing on section 35A that starts Saturday. (Image representational)

UNITED NATIONS: The United Nations security council (UNSC) - most powerful international body - has condemned the Pulwama attack in the “strongest terms” and called for holding accountable sponsors of terrorism.
The all powerful UN body has also named Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad in an official statement.
Sources however said the UN condemnation statement was in a standard UNSC format issued for every terrorist strike it has condemned, changing only names of country, places and those responsible.
Where an entity claimed responsibility credibly, the press statements name them, not otherwise.
So, sources added, it was expected for the statement to name JeM, which had claimed responsibility.
