Pakistan desperate to increase violence in J&K: Core Group
“Forces ready to meet anticipated security challenges”
Srinagar: A top level meeting was held here today with General Officer Commanding, Chinar Corps, Lt Gen BS Raju and Director General of Police Jammu & Kashmir, Dilbag Singh in the chair to review the security situation and ensure ‘readiness to meet anticipated security challenges’.
The Core Group meeting was attended by top officials of Civil Administration, Intelligence Agencies and Security Forces.
In a statement issued here today a defence spokesman said that the Core Group focused on the need for high level of synergy amongst all the agencies in addressing the security concerns of Kashmir.
“Intelligence inputs indicate that Pakistan had intensified its efforts at increasing infiltration and ceasefire violations across the Line of Control. There is also an effort to calibrate increase in terrorist actions in the hinterland. Pakistan and its proxies are also active on social media to launch disinformation campaign in J&K,” the meeting observed.
The spokesman said that the Core Group discussed the plans to ensure a robust counter infiltration grid along the Line of Control, counter terrorist grid in the hinterland and recent successes in anti-terror operations.
The meeting observed that intelligence inputs indicate efforts by anti nationals and Pakistan proxies to calibrate increase in violence in the Jammu and Kashmir, adding, recent successes including killing of terrorist leaders and prevention of large scale IED attacks have blunted such efforts.
The Divisional Commissioner brought out the focus of the administration to tackle cultivation and trafficking of drugs in the valley, and also the focussed efforts to address the COVID 19 challenge facing the nation.
