Jammu: The Director General of Police Dilbag Singh on Monday asked his officers to remain extra vigilant against the use of drones by militants.

He was chairing a high level joint security meeting at Police Headquarters here to review the security scenario in Jammu zone.

The DGP, after obtaining the district assessments of prevailing security situation and arising challenges, directed the officers to strengthen and augment the security grids in their respective areas for the safety and security of the people.

He said that the action against militants should be continued and all the suspicious elements should be kept under check so as to foil their “ill designs aimed at disrupting normal lives of the people.” He stressed on the importance of maintaining close synergy between J&K Police and other security agencies to meet the security challenges.

While reviewing the security situation on the highway grid, the DGP directed the officers to intensify the naka checking on the thoroughfare and plug the gaps with strict security measures so that no room would be available to the “enemies of peace.” The DGP also stressed on strengthening of the city security grids.
