The security forces have killed 22 terrorists in the past two weeks, according to the Director-General of Police, Dilbag Singh.
The DGP complimented the security forces for successful operations. He said that during the last two weeks, 22 terrorists were neutralised with cooperation from the people. The operations involved the least collateral damages in most of the operations. The J&K Police, Army & CAPF is making all-out efforts in providing a more peaceful atmosphere for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Our strategy to counter-Pakistan is two-pronged, which is to stop infiltration along the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border (IB) and tackle those who are active in the hinterland, besides stopping local youth from joining terror ranks. Thankfully, we are successful to a large extent in this endeavour," he told reporters here.
Referring to the killing of nine Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists in two back-to-back successful operations in the past 24 hours in Shopian district of South Kashmir, the police chief said the effort of the security forces is to control and wipe out terrorism from Jammu and Kashmir.
"The 22 terrorists, especially the six top commanders who were killed in nine major operations in the past two weeks, have created fear among people," he said.
"They have a long list of crimes to their credit like the killing of innocent civilians after dubbing them as informers and attacks on security forces, entering homes of people forcibly. Their elimination will bring big relief to people in south Kashmir," he said.
