Islamabad police, under the command of Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Sajid Kiani, have ensured foolproof security arrangements by deploying at least 2500 security officials of police, traffic police, Special Branch, FC and Rangers at various rooftops around Federal Judicial Academy to avoid any untoward incident.

The roads heading to the academy have been blocked by placing barbed wires to refrain entry of irrelevant persons in the area, the higher police official said.
