J&K situation very fragile

SAM Staff,

Describing the situation in Jammu and Kashmir as “extremely fragile,” Director-General of Police 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.

“The continuing infiltration along the border is a cause of worry which can change the whole game,” the DGP told a meeting of top civil and police officials chaired by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti here 5 November.

Referring to the situation in Kashmir, where the unrest triggered by the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July completed four months, Mr. Rajendra said even though the intensity and spread of the situation had come down, it continued to be “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 had been set ablaze by miscreants during the ongoing unrest in the Valley.

He said restoration of normalcy would 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 the drive against miscreants,” he said.
