Contrary to Army's claims JK DGP says ‘situation fragile, 300 militants still active'

 Srinagar, November 6: Describing the situation in and as “extremely fragile”, state DGP K Rajendra has said around 300 militants are active in the state and that continuing infiltration along the Line of Control (LoC) is a cause of worry.

Contrary to various statements of the top Army Commanders in the past the army has almost made it very difficult for the intruders to cross over the LoC and that the alert troops had foiled the bids by militants to cross over the LoC and many had been eliminated attempting so, the DGP's statement suggest that either Army's claim is false or Police has failed to deal with the situation effectively.”The continuing infiltration along the border is a cause of worry, which can change the whole game,” the Director General of Police (DGP) told a meeting of top civil and police officials of the state, chaired by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, here on Saturday.

Referring to the situation in Kashmir where the unrest triggered after the killing of three Hizbul Mujahideen militants in July completed four months, Rajendra said even though the intensity and spread of the situation has come down, it continued to be “extremely fragile”.


“While the intensity and spread of situation has come down, the situation is extremely fragile. At present, 250-300 militants are active. Given the present situation, we need to have a road map for next two-three months,” he said.


The DGP said at least 70 buildings have been set ablaze by miscreants during the ongoing unrest in the Valley.


“53 of these 70 buildings have been damaged totally,” the police chief said.


He said the restoration of normalcy will remain the top priority for the forces in coming days.


“While a semblance of normalcy has been restored, there is no scope for complacency. Police will continue its drive against miscreants,” he said.


At the meeting, Deputy Commissioners and SSPs of Kashmir division made detailed presentations on the ongoing development works, some of which have been affected due to the situation.


They also provided figures on the number of cases filed over the last four months and the arrests made in those cases.
