Rajouri: Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh Thursday asked the field officers to put in more efforts to track down terrorists involved in the January 1 Dhangri attack.
A statement of J&K Police issued here said that chairing a security review meeting of all the security force organisations at Rajouri, he also called for further strengthening the intelligence network at the grass root level.
The DGP appreciated the synergy between the forces and intelligence agencies saying, “The evil intentions of Pakistan and its terror agencies had been foiled.”
The situation, especially the anti-terror operation post Dhangri attack was discussed during the meeting following which the Police chief underlined the need for more efforts to track culprits involved in the attack.
He also directed for alertness on borders and in the hinterland and emphasised on using the border SPOs for creating a strong border intelligence network besides utilising the services of VDGs more efficiently and in an organised manner.
“Pakistan is using all methods to involve our youth in the drug menace,” Singh said. “Regular seizure of various consignments of narcotics has foiled their evil designs.”
He said that stern actions and synchronised efforts of all the forces would demolish the entire network of drug trade.
The DGP emphasised on strengthening checkpoints on the highways to keep check on transportation of drugs, weapons, and other criminal activities.
