Top civil and military officials during a high-level huddle in Lahore decided to intensify military operations across the province on Sunday.

Participants of an apex committee meeting chaired by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to review law and order in the province resolved to rid the region of extremism, sectarianism, militancy and terrorism.

It was decided that recently launched country-wide military operation Raddul Fasaad would be ramped up, and the scope of Rangers, police and Counter-Terrorism Department operations widened.

The committee also directed law enforcement agencies to provide foolproof security to mosques, imambargahs and other places of worship in the province.
