Multiple attempts to keep terrorism living in J&K are made through infiltration: DGP Dilbag Singh

Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police (DGP), Dilbag Singh, said on June 17 that there have been recent attempts to sneak across the Line of Control (LoC) to keep “terrorism alive.” He said that there was less terrorism in J&K, but there had been some successful invasion attempts in Rajouri and Poonch, where terrorists were able to sneak in and attack citizens and security forces.


DGP Singh told reporters at the Jashn-e-Dal programme in Srinagar that people in J&K are getting the benefits of peace for the first time in a long time because kids are going to school, businesses are running smoothly, and a lot of tourists are coming to the area. “Terrorism is slowly dying, but there are always efforts from across the Line of Control (LoC) to send in attackers to keep it going. This year, security forces have stopped most of the terrorists’ attempts to get into this side from the Rajouri-Poonch and Kupwara sectors. However, some terrorists have been able to get into this side from those two sectors. They recently attacked citizens and security forces,” he said, adding that operations are underway to find these groups and that they will soon be singled out.

He said that in the past few weeks, six attempts to sneak across the border were stopped, and yesterday, June 16, five terrorists were killed along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Jamagund area of Kupwara district. A large amount of weapons and ammo was found in their hands. “Just yesterday, another attempt to get into this side was stopped in the Poonch sector, where a group of terrorists had to be pushed back,” the DGP said.

When asked if the ongoing attempts at infiltration broke the Ceasefire deal, the J&K police chief said that both sides were following the agreement in spirit, but “there are some efforts to push militants into this side to keep the pot boiling.”

When asked about plans for the upcoming Yatra, the DGP said that all security plans are being made to make sure the journey goes smoothly and without problems. He said, “We will make sure that every pilgrim goes home with great memories.”

The DGP said that it was great that the people of J&K had turned away from bloodshed and were now living in peace. Concerning drugs and the fact that a lot of young people in J&K are hooked on them, he called for a social effort by civil society to stop the problem, in addition to the war on drugs that is already going on.

Earlier, when he spoke to the crowd, he said that Jashn-e-Dal is a chance to show how friendly Kashmiris are. “About 600 kids who like water sports are going to take part in the event. We want to give them a stage on a national and foreign level,” he said, adding that Dal Lake is not only beautiful but also as quiet as ever. “People are free to move around and make plans for trips,” he said. The DGP said that some people are still planning to break the peace, but that “police are active and fighting on all fronts” to stop them.
