Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh Monday said the force was “near” its goal of “completely finishing” militancy in the state.
On his maiden visit to the winter capital after taking over as the acting DGP early this month, Singh said several successful operations were conducted against militants in the last week referring to the killing of 15 terrorists in five separate operations between September 11 and 15.
Jammu and Kashmir police has been fighting militancy for the last so many years and keeping in view our capabilities, we are near our goal of completely finishing militancy in the state, Singh said in his address to the state’s police personnel.
We are premier stake holders in peace, the DGP said, adding police had the dual responsibility of being the custodian as well as maintainer of peace in the state.
Singh complimented the security forces for the successful operation at Kakriyal in Reasi district which resulted in the killing of three Pakistani Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists on September 13.
