LAHORE - Though security has been 'beefed up' in and around the City in the aftermath of serious security threats facing the country, the security arrangements at City's ten entry points and in the outskirts are not up to mark according to security experts who believe that terrorists could strike with convenience if the most vulnerable points are not well guarded. "In the past when a series of suicide bomb blasts rocked Lahore at various points including GPO, FIA building and other areas, the explosive material was transported in the City using the entry points", a retired police officer told The Nation seeking anonymity. The entry/exit points of the City are considered major means of transportation of heavy consignments of illegal weapons and drugs, he claimed adding that there was dire need to enhance deployment at these points besides providing state of the art devises to the police force performing duty there. According to police sources, only 170 police officials have been deployed at City's ten entry / exit points to find suspected people or expected transportation of explosive material among thousands of vehicles, including trucks and buses. Besides, the police officials deputed at these sensitive points are depending only on the secret reports of the sensitive agencies to perform this duty.  Senior police officers, however, believe that it was almost impossible to check each and every vehicle entering the City as six thousand trucks, carrying different kinds of goods, enter the City trough these points daily besides thousands of other vehicles. "The police only searches the suspected vehicles on getting tips from its informants and intelligence agencies", a police official deployed at one of the entry points told this scribe. Meanwhile, following a series of bomb blasts in Karachi and Islamabad, and in the wake of intelligence reports at least two terrorists and some suspected vehicles have already entered the City, security has been beefed up at all official buildings and sensitive installations to protect them possible terrorist attacks, but numerous public places like markets, hotels, and parking lots have been ignored. Contrary to the inadequate security measures at most of the public places, the main focus of police seems to be at major and sensitive installations, five star restaurants, important government buildings, residences of the senior political leaders, offices of the law enforcement agencies, embassies and such other places. Superintendent, Mobile Squad Salman Ali Khan, who is supervising police patrolling in the entire City, told this scribe that over 1000 (one thousand) mobile squad officials were patrolling in their respective fields on around 80 police vans, and 250 motorbikes to thwart any attempt of terrorists and in this regard.
