The DGP said that the foreign militants are using fake identity cards to hide their identities.
JAMMU â Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Tuesday said that police along with other forces are gearing up to ensure a smooth Amarnath pilgrimage this year while anti-militancy operations will be intensified ahead of the Yatra.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in the Samba district, the DGP said that in the past few years, there have been a series of successful anti-militancy operations and ahead of the annual pilgrimage of Amarnath commencing on June 30, âwe will intensify the operations against the militants.â
âSecurity situation is much better than the past. We have been able to track down all the militants who carry out civilian killings and those involved in the killing of armed forces personnel. We have got solid leads about the killing of two Railway Protection Police Force personnel and very soon, we will catch those involved,â he said, adding that so many lesser-known outfits have claimed the responsibility for the attack on Railway cops. âFact remains that these all are the offshoots of Lashkar-e-Taiba,â he said.
He said that the weapon consignments are being sent from across through drones that include Ak-47s and pistols etc.
âIn the cities like Srinagar, attacks on civilians are being carried out by pistol-bound militants, rather new recruits. New recruits are being given pistols and grenades to show their commitment,â the DGP said.
He said that police was strengthening its network to crackdown on those involved in the recent commission of crimes. âThose involved in the killing of civilians, non-locals, and railway cops will be either arrested or killed,â he said.
