Cross-border infiltration has come down in J&K: DGP
A ‘robust’ counter-infiltration grid along the Indo-Pak border has helped in bringing down intrusion into the country significantly, Jammu and Kashmir police chief K Rajendra Kumar said on Saturday.
“Our counter infiltration grid is robust. Our troops are alert on the borders. Infiltration came down in 2014 as compared to 2013. We have had a lot of successes last year,” the DGP (J&K) told reporters here.
“And this year also, we have seen a good amount of successes so far. People are coming forward with actionable intelligence and as a result of this, there hasn’t been any collateral damage,” Kumar said.
The DGP was replying to questions regarding security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and cross-border infiltration.
On security situation, the DGP said, “There is peace and everybody wants peace not violence”.
Asked on the issue of J&K youths being lured to join militant groups by cross-border elements, he said, “We are identifying all that causes that lead our youth to take the wrong path and we will ensure that they get blocked. Those found involved would be punished severely”.
