Twenty-two terrorists killed in last 2 weeks, says J&K DGP
Jammu/UNI: Director General of Police J&K on Monday said in the past two weeks, 22 terrorists have been killed in separate operations.
The number stands at 88 in the year so far.
Though Pakistan is pushing terrorists to Jammu and Kashmir, alert forces at the borders and Jammu and Kashmir Police, along with CAPF, are thwarting the wicked action planned by the neighbouring country and its terrorist handlers, the DGP stated.
Briefing a section of select media here, the police chief complimented the security forces for the successful operations.
He said that during the last two weeks, 22 terrorists were neutralised with cooperation from the people.
The operations involved least collateral damage in most of the operations, he said, adding that the J&K Police, Army and CAPF is making all out efforts in providing a more peaceful atmosphere for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that Pakistan and its terrorist handlers are hell bent upon disturbing the ever improving security environment of Jammu and Kashmir by training and sending in terrorists by way of infiltration to J&K.
Uniformed forces at the borders are alert and bravely foiling most of such attempts of infiltration by these terrorists.
He added that still sizeable number of terrorists get through the rough and tedious terrains along IB and LOC , who perpetrate acts of violence and terror against innocent civilians and Security Forces and get neutralised by the J&K Police alongwith the CAPFs in the hinterlands.
A number of Pakistani terrorists active here are getting killed and leave behind unimpeachable incriminating material to show Pakistan involvement in the ongoing terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
The DGP said that during the current year so far 88 terrorists have been neutralised in 35 operations, 40 terrorist associates who were providing a direct support system to these terrorists were arrested.
He said that 240 OGWs were also arrested for helping these terrorists by instigating law & order problems and many of them were booked under PSA.
The DGP said that Pakistan is sponsoring and financing different outfits of terrorists. He said that a large number of social media sites are being used by Pak agencies/handlers to lure the youth of Jammu and Kashmir and our Police and intelligence agencies are foiling such attempts.
'Our efforts and people’s cooperation have yielded good results in keeping the youth away from violence. Due to the good team work by Army, CAPFs and J&K Police we have succeeded in maintaining peace & order in Jammu Kashmir and the cooperation and support from the People here is commendable'.
Speaking about the fight against coronavirus, the DGP said that the commitment and dedication shown by the jawans on ground is praiseworthy. He said that J&K Police and SFs have shown professionalism in facing many challenges over the past 3 decades and this time around too they have shown courage and determination in facing the challenge of COVID-19 bravely while supporting different agencies in fighting deadly virus.
He said that many Police personnel who were infected by the virus are recovering. “I hope the officers and jawans of J&K Police will continue to fight the virus and would continue to provide assistance to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and simultaneously keep a check on the law & order and on the anti national activities” DGP said.
