Responding to information from the Army headquarters about terrorists’ activity in Belgaum, defence authorities have increased security in the city. The new boards installed at the Cantonment and the fort that declare them as restricted areas are part of the security measures initiated by the Army.

Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre Commandant Brig Santosh Kurup told Express that the arrests of suspected terrorists have proved their presence in Belgaum and Karnataka. The security measures were taken considering possible terror strikes at army installations housed inside the fort and Cantonment areas, he said. “The movement of general public is not restricted there. If our men detect any suspicious activity, only then they will detain those involved,” he clarified. The measures are not for the harassment of civilians but for security purposes, he said. The historic fort area consists of several state government offices, the famous Kamal Basti and Ramkrishna Ashram. Brig Kurup said there is no reason to panic if people and their possessions are checked in the identified areas.
