Number of militants on all-time low in J-K: DGP


Militancy has not ended in Jammu and Kashmir yet, but it is on the wane as the number of ultras has declined to an all-time low, Director General of Police Dilbag Singh said on Thursday. Singh made the statement while speaking to reporters in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.

“The militancy in J-K is not over, but it is ending. The number of militants whether locals or Pakistani terrorists, is at an all-time low,” he said.

The DGP said the local youth who were pushed towards militancy, have now returned to the mainstream after leaving that path.
