A few dozen militants active in JK: DGP


Jammu, Nov 5: Claiming that only a few dozen militants are presently active in JK, Director General of Police, Ashok Prasad, on Monday said the security agencies in the state had effectively restricted the militant movement both within the state and from across the border.
Talking to media persons here, on the opening of Durbar Move, the DGP said that out of 200 to 250 militants present in the state only a few dozen of them were active. However, he said that there was huge pressure on the borders due to repeated infiltration bids being made from the other side.
Terming the situation in the state as under control, he said the past months of this year had witnessed about hundred militancy related incidents.
“In all, about 100 militancy related activities have been reported this year and if it is said that 100 militants were involved it indicates that one hundred fifty didn’t participate in the militancy related activities at all.”
This indicates our effectiveness in containing the militant activities on this side, he said adding “Though there is lot of pressure on the borders but in view of close vigil it is not possible for the militants to cross over the border”.
Prasad said the militants can be classified into three categories, including those who are active, others who have crossed over to the border but doing no activity and the third those who were waiting to infiltrate inside the state.
“There is constant pressure on the International Borders and Army deployed at IB is performing its duty well. To guard the country on the border is the task of army, while the internal security has to be maintained by Police Department for which the department is fully prepared” he added.
Later, the DGP formally resumed the office working at Jammu following Durbar move. As a customary practice the top cop also took Guard of Honour and later on he interacted with the officials of the Police Department and discussed various issues regarding security. He was accompanied by Additional Directors General of Police, K Rajendra Kumar, Dr Ram Lubhaya and SP Vaid.
Prasad also held a meeting with senior police officers at PHQ and discussed various matters related to the Police Organization. He enquired about the progress achieved on different fronts of policing in the State. He instructed the officers to maintain close rapport at all levels to maintain the law and order.
Among others, the meeting was attended by IGPs, VK Singh, Dilbag Singh, Owais Ahmed, Dr B Srinivas, AK Choudhary, HK Lohia, AG Mir, M Sulaiman Salaria, Dr K K Saini, Yoginder Koul, Alok Puri and  Muneer Ahmed Khan, DIGs, T Punchok, AS Bali, JP Singh, AK Atri, Johny William, RP Resutra, Shakeel Beig and other senior police officers.
