PARACHINAR: Security has been intensified in the town after the recent suicide attack to foil such incidents in future.

The Pakistan Army has established 24 posts in the city to boost security.

Officials said that with the establishment of new checkposts, the entry of illegal vehicles in the city would be banned. They said all the vehicles were also being registered and with the completion of the process, no unregistered vehicle would be allowed to enter the city.

Also, the authorities have asked the people residing along the border to remain cautious.

The caution call was apparently given after the threatening pamphlets of the militant group Daesh was found in the area.
