No locals in militant ranks: IG CRPF
Islamabad (Anantnag), Sep 30: Claiming that there is hardly any presence of locals in the militant ranks Inspector General of Police (CRPF), Dr B N Ramesh, Friday said the graph of militancy in the state had declined.
“The situation has improved a lot and the graph of militancy has come down drastically,” said IGP while talking to media persons after inaugurating a T-20 cricket tournament at Mattan here in south Kashmir.
The IGP said that though the neighboring country was trying to “manipulate the minds” of the youth and trying to disrupt the peace in the Valley but they were ready to foil their “evil designs.”
“It is heartening to see that the presence of local militants in the militant ranks is next to nothing. A few militants who are present there in the state are mostly foreigners,” he said.
The IGP said that the CRPF was adopting a joint strategy along with police in the anti-militancy operations.
“ The youth here very much peace loving and they are rendering every kind of help to accomplish our dream of turning Kashmir into abode of peace,” the IGP said.
Earlier while inaugurating the T-20 tournament at Mattan Sports Stadium, the IGP said, “Sports acts as bridge between security forces and youth.”
He said that the CRPF wants to provide platform to the local youth and nurture their talent so that they can make it big.
