Kupwara, Bandipora, Ganderbal militancy free: ADGP

Three districts in Kashmir are militancy free and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed, have gone headless after security forces neutralised their operatives and commanders

Additional Director General of Police (Kashmir zone) Vijay Kumar while interacting with a group of visiting journalists at the Police Control Rroom here said that three districts of Bandipora, Kupwara and Ganderbal are militancy free as there are no active militants in these districts.

He said there are 81 militants at present in Kashmir with 29 being local while 52 are of foreign origin (Pakistanis).

The ADGP said that the security forces have an upper hand now when it comes to containing militancy. “We are working to bring the figure of active, foreign and hybrid militancy to less than 50 in the near future,” the officer said.

He said that in next two years security forces will wipe out militancy from Kashmir.
