It was also decided to set up common barricades on the inter-state borders.

Issues related to prevention of smuggling of narcotics and illegal liquor were also discussed.

The spokesperson said it was also decided that CCTV cameras would be installed at petrol pumps located near border areas and at border checkpoints to prevent any illegal activity.
