Kupwara, October 24: Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Tuesday claimed that Jammu and Kashmir is taking steps towards peace as just 10 local youngsters have joined militancy, a significant drop from last year’s total of 110.

According to the KNS, DGP Dilbagh Singh made the following statement to the media in Kupwara: “I wish if these 10 couldn’t have joined militancy, it would have been a joy for us.”


Six of these ten, he added, had already been eliminated in separate meetings, and the other four will likely meet the same fate shortly. “They should surrender before the security forces, and that will be good for them, so that they too will live their lives peacefully,” the DGP advised these disenfranchised militants.

The DGP said that Jammu and Kashmir’s security situation has changed significantly over the last five years while describing the state’s current predicament. Nearly all insurgent activity has been eliminated from the area, and the remaining militants will be defeated shortly. The newfound tranquilly in the Union Territory was something he hoped would last. The problem of the Kupwara area serving as a drug smuggling corridor was also addressed.

As he put it, “it is unfortunate that the people of the district should think about it, that it is wrong, and should close these ways themselves for living a peaceful life.” Furthermore, he said, “We are with peace, not with violence,” emphasising the need to opt for peaceful cohabitation in the area.
