Militancy on verge of extinction: IG CRPF

SRINAGAR:  Militancy in Kashmir is on the verge of extinction while an effective strategy devised by Intelligence Agencies to counter militancy has proven effective so far, Inspector General Central Reserve Police Force, P K Singh said Friday 

“Militancy in Kashmir Valley has come down sharply and the situation is altogether different at present than it was in 1990. In every encounter that took place in north and south Kashmir, security forces managed to neutralize top rank militant commanders,” Singh said on the sidelines of a function.

He claimed that as a result of the chalked out strategy militants fail to inflict any damage on security forces in the encounters.

He said that there were reports that there will be surge in militancy but due to ‘effective strategy’ chalked out by security forces, militancy has touched its lowest ebb in Kashmir Valley now and peace was returning.

While responding to a query, Singh said that there was good coordination between CRPF and state police and both were doing a good job in maintain law and order in Valley.
