A fresh start for Jammu, declared militancy-free
The war against terrorism in the valley has achieved a biggest success in the last 22 years.
Talking to media, the Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, Omar Abdullah said, “You cannot find a single militant in most of the areas in Jammu division. At the most, 30 to 40 militants will be operating in whole of the Jammu division.”
However, this is the first time in the past 22 years when the state government is claiming that militancy has reduced to double digit in the state.
The Jammu region shares a big part of border with Pakistan and has been facing high militancy since 22 years.
In the last 22 years, militants have killed many youths and people of Jammu region. The Jammu region has highest number of village defence committees to protect the people from terror attacks.
Sharing views with media, former director general of J&K police, MM Khajuria said, “The security forces have to be very cautious because it is during this twilight period when militants carry out brutal attacks to raise the morale of their cadres. While the government, police and security forces can draw satisfaction, they should also remain more vigilant.”
Moreover, the Jammu region is enjoying the militancy-free environment, while Kashmir is still fight with Terrorism. In 2012, only 100 militancy-related incident were witnessed in the state against 192 last year.
