The tour was primarily aimed at taking stock of the on-ground security measures and deployment of forces in the city besides greeting civilians, J&K Police and forces personnel on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
While interacting with the territorial officers, the CS and the DGP directed them to be alert and cautious as "anti-national elements are hellbent to disturb the peaceful environment."

Eid al-Adha or Bakr-id, also known as "Sacrifice Feast" is marked by sacrificing an mal, usually a sheep or a goat to prove their devotion and love for Allah. After the sacrifice, devotees distribute the offering to family, friends, neighbours and especially to the poor and the needy.
