Jammu, Mar 29: Following militant threats in the Winter Capital of Jammu and Kashmir, ''tight security'' arrangements have been made for the peaceful celebrations of the fortnight-long Jammu Festival, beginning from April 1 here, official sources said today.

Sources said that attempts to spoil the sport made by the militants during the Jammu Festival in the City of Temples cannot be ruled out. ''Security has been beefed up in the entire city, while strict vigil is being kept by the police and other agencies ahead of the Festival celebrations,'' well-placed sources told UNI asserting, ''Additional security forces will be deployed, while night patrolling and nakkas have been tightened to keep check on suspicious movements.'' However, the 15-day long Jammu Festival is likely to observe a huge rush as cultural items, street plays, skits and, above all, a Sonu Nigam night will be the highlights.
