Ahead of Republic Day celebrations, the government has beefed up security measures as some intel supposed that Pakistan’s ISI could use Afghan passports to send terrorists to India

A report from intelligence agencies suggested on Tuesday that terrorists are possibly planning to pose as Afghanistanis or simply use Afghanis to carry out a terror attack in India.

In the view of terror threat, the national capital has been brought under ground-to-air security cover with thousands of armed personnel keeping a tight vigil for the Republic Day celebrations, falling on Thursday.

This time, police will use anti-drone technology to thwart any attack or identify any suspicious flying object, a senior police officer said.

Apart from this, security personnel will be stationed atop tall buildings with anti-aircraft guns. On January 25, Delhi borders will be sealed and all cars entering the national capital will be checked thoroughly, he said.

CCTV cameras have been installed and eight control rooms have been set up to monitor the feed from the cameras, the officer said.

Various security layers have been put in place and Delhi Police personnel along with paramilitary and NSG commandos have been deployed.
