In view of the Valentine's Day on Wednesday, Chandigarh Police have made special arrangements to maintain law and order in the city.

"Approximately 900 police personnel from police stations, different wings, IRB (India Reserve Batallion) and PCR have been deployed for law and order duties that will include six DSPs and 24 inspectors/SHOs," he said.

The maximum police force will be deployed nearby girls hostels, colleges and Panjab University, busy markets and shopping malls.

A reserve force will remain on alert for mobilising in case of any contingencies, he said.

“The PCR staff will carry out patrolling in the city and PCR vehicles will be stationed near girls hostels, colleges and Panjab University. Every location will be under direct supervision of DSPs and inspectors for the maintenance of law and order," the spokesman said.
