SRINAGAR: In a major success against militancy, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has said that there is just only one Srinagar resident militant active.
A senior official said that just one resident militant is left from the Srinagar district namely Momin Gulzar, a resident of the Eidgah area. It was also conveyed that not letting the youth join the militant ranks is among the top priority of J&K police.
Further, the militancy incidents in the Srinagar district have been reduced considerably and the district is fast becoming one of the most peaceful districts of the Valley.
The officials said that this year from 1st January 2022 till date, only 2 minor law & order incidents took place—one in Shankerpora, Nowgam and another in the Maisuma area of Srinagar. Both incidents were minor in nature and were contained within minutes.
This is in contrast to when in 2018 more than 200 reported in and around 400 in 2016. “This indicates that peace is fast returning to Srinagar and efforts are on to make the peaceful atmosphere a permanent feature,” the officials said.
Earlier J&K Police chief, DGP J&K, Dilbagh Singh had informed that the number of militants both foreigners and locals have been brought to two digits after many years—(KNO)
