Mehbooba slams Centre for deployment of additional CAPF in Kashmir


Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and People’s Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday hit out at the Centre for the deployment of additional 100 companies of central armed police force (CAPF) in Kashmir.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “Centre’s decision to deploy additional 10,000 troops to the valley has created fear psychosis amongst  people. There is no dearth of security forces in Kashmir. J&K is a political problem which won’t be solved by military means. GOI needs to rethink & overhaul its policy.”

The Home Minister has ordered deployment of additional 100 companies of CAPFs in Jammu and Kashmir.

“In order to strengthen the CI (counter-insurgency) grid as well as for maintaining law and order situation in Jammu and Kashmir,” reads the order.
