ISLAMABAD: The federal government's decision to deploy the army in Islamabad under Article 245 of the Constitution came in effect from Friday, with the military mandated to aid civilian law-enforcement agencies in securing the capital for the next three months.
Five companies of the army have been deployed in various parts of Islamabad to secure main offices of the judiciary, Parliament House, Presidency and Prime Minister Houses, foreign missions, foreign office and other important installations, sources said.
One army company was deployed at Margalla Hills and on the road that connects the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with Islamabad, they added.
According to the security plan, the army would work in close coordination with the police, Rangers and administration for ensuring fool proof security for Islamabad. - Online
