He further directed the police, rangers and law enforcement agencies (LEAs) to start snap checking, patrolling to foil the unholy plan of anti-social elements, criminals and terrorists during Eid days.

The chief minister also directed police and Rangers to make coordinated efforts for combating the situation and such criminal activities be properly watched and monitored for eradication.
