Militancy on the verge of extinction: IG CRPF

KL Report


Inspector General Central Reserve Police Force, P K Singh Friday said that militancy in Kashmir Valley is on the verge of extinction while the effective strategy devised by Intelligence Agencies to counter militancy has been proving helpful and effective so far.

IG CRPF, on the sidelines of a function said, “It is a positive sign and the result of the chalked out strategy that in the encounter militants are getting killed and they fail to inflict any damage on security forces.”

“Militancy in Kashmir Valley has come down sharply and the situation is altogether different at present than it was way back in 1990. In every encounter that took place in North and South Kashmir, security forces managed to neutralize top rank militant commanders,” he said.

He further said that there were reports that there will be surge in militancy but due to effective strategy chalked out by security forces, militancy has its lowest ebb in Kashmir Valley now and peace has started returning.

Responding to a query, Singh said that there is coordination between CRPF and State Police and both are doing a good job in maintaining law and order in the Valley. (CNS)
