Jammu, June 25: Director General of Police, Dilbag Singh, today said that anti-militancy operations will be intensified.
“This is not a one-sided fight, when more than 200 militants with weapons would be present at a place. It cannot happen that you (security forces) fight them and they die and they stop anti-national activities.”
He was responding to a question on targeted killings (of politicians and police officials) being carried out by the militants.
“We are trying all possible efforts to curb their activities. We will intensify our already established arrangements to strengthen this fight against militancy.”
The DGP was speaking to journalists on the sideline of a Passing Out Parade at STC Talwara in Reasi District on the completion of a training course of policemen.
“The presence of militants has declined in Jammu and Kashmir in comparison to the past. In coming times, this will further reduce.”
With reference to sports activities by police officers and jawans, he said these activities were halted due to Covid19 situation, “but we are hopeful that we will involve our policemen in sports activities.”
The DGP said that it’s a time of pride that around 604 policemen have become part of J&K Police and it would strengthen the department.
