Inspector General Police Punjab Faisal Shahkar has said state guest security will be provided to England players, ICC officials, and other foreign staff during their stay in Lahore, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel.   

The IG Punjab said that more than 8,000 officers and personnel would perform security duties during the Pakistan England series’ last three T20 matches to be played at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

He directed that foolproof security and traffic management arrangements should be made during the series while 24-hour monitoring of teams' routes, hotels, and Gaddafi Stadium inside and outside would be done by safe city cameras.

He directed the Special Branch and CTD to take special measures for the peaceful conduct of the cricket series. He gave a special task to CTO Lahore to maintain the uninterrupted flow of traffic during the matches and said that additional wardens and personnel should be appointed to maintain the flow of traffic.
