CS reviews overall security scenario of J&K


Srinagar, May 20: Chief Secretary Atal Dulloo reviewed the overall security scenario prevailing in and on Monday.

Dulloo chaired a high-level meeting of Civil and police administrations here today to review the security scenario in the wake of the ensuing tourist season and the ongoing election process in J&K.

The meeting deliberated on taking further steps to strengthen the security grid.

The Chief Secretary observed that the dividends of peace prevailing in Jammu and Kashmir over the past 4–5 years have been substantial and encouraging for all.

He maintained that the bumper tourist arrivals and significant voter turnout in the ongoing parliamentary elections are visible indicators of peace and harmony witnessed here during this period.

Dullu stated that any effort to derail the visible conducive would be dealt with strictly.

The Chief Secretary remarked that this notable improvement in the security scenario has benefited one and all and needs to be preserved at all costs.

He impressed upon the law and order-maintaining agencies to be vigilant against the inimical forces and ensure concerted coordination for the absolute safety of tourists, political workers, and other civilians in J&K.

During the meeting, Director General of Police R. R. Swain said that the law enforcement agencies are taking both on-field and off-field measures to ensure the safety of the citizens here.

He also noted that the participation of people in large numbers in the ongoing elections has unnerved certain elements who would never be allowed to succeed in their designs by the security forces.

He favoured devising Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to be adhered to by the different stakeholders to minimise the chances of any terror incident by terrorists.

He called for initiating certain prophylactic measures to ensure the fewest disturbances in the day-to-day and routine of our citizens. He revealed that necessary steps would be taken to root out the chances of such incidents in the future.

The meeting also decided to constitute a committee consisting of both senior police and civil officers to devise Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the safety of all the susceptible groups in J&K. The SOP will chalk out the duties and responsibilities of all the stakeholders, viz., the government, general public, tourists, political workers, and the hospitality industry.
