New Delhi, Feb 14 (UNI) The Jammu and Kashmir Director General Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Friday called on the Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh here and briefed him about the current security scenario in the Union Territory.
In a briefing that lasted over 30 minutes, Mr Singh informed the Minister that terror related violence in Jammu and Kashmir had come down by 60 percent in the first one and a half months of 2020 as compared to the same period during 2019.
Also there has been no major law and order or stone pelting incident at the encounter site or during burial of neutralized terrorists, he added.
The J&K DGP also made a detailed presentation before Dr Jitendra Singh highlighting that upto February13 in the current year, 24 militants had been neutralized, which includes 20 killed and four arrested.
This is in addition to the arrest of 12 terror operatives involved in grenade attacks in Srinagar and other areas, and arrest of 43 Over Ground Workers (OGWs) who were providing all kind of assistance and logistic support to various cadres of different terror outfits, the DGP further said in the presentation.
Of the 24 militants neutralized so far in year 2020, the DGP’s report indicated that 10 militants were affiliated with Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), while a newly infiltrated group of three militants were neutralized at Ban Toll Plaza, Jammu and 11 were from Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) outfit.
Dr Jitendra Singh appreciated the performance of the security forces and close coordination between J&K Police (JKP) and Paramilitary Forces, which had become much more cohesive and effective, particularly after the imposition of Governor's rule and creation of Union Territory.
He also expressed satisfaction that in the last one and a half months, there has been no major law and order problem.
DGP Singh also informed Dr Jitendra Singh that the surveillance mechanism, both technical and human, had been further strengthened.
As a result of this, he said, the return of seven youth from South Kashmir back to their families was made possible and they were thus prevented from joining the militant rank and file.
