LAHORE: The Cabinet Committee on Law and Order reviewed on Monday security arrangements for PSL cricket matches and decided to further tighten security in view of any possible terrorist act.

Chairing the cabinet committee meeting at civil secretariat, Punjab Law Minister Basharat Raja directed that special attention should be paid to minimising the problems of people while implementing the security plan.

Mr Raja directed CTO Hammad Abid to meet shopkeepers and traders to take them into confidence and pay special attention to solving traffic problems.

The committee approved three separate packages of compensation for the police personnel martyred in terrorist acts, encounters or accidents.

Mr Raja directed that nowadays, the proliferation of sectarian hatred on social media should be monitored and strict action be taken against those responsible for maintaining current spirit of interfaith harmony at every cost.

The meeting was attended by the ACS (home), IG Punjab, additional IG Special Branch, additional IG CTD, the Lahore commissioner and other officials concerned.
