Speaking to media persons in Samba, the Chief of JK Police emphasised that individuals arrested on these grounds will face severe consequences in accordance with the law. “We view anyone attempting to acquire weapons, ammunition, explosives, narcotics, or money as a grave threat to our country. Those accused will be charged with the highest level of treason and terrorism,” Swain stated.

He added that the security along the border areas is tight but attempts are being made from across the border to disrupt peace in the Union Territory.
