“We will ensure peaceful Lok Sabha polls in J&K. We will provide a safe and secure atmosphere to enthusiastic voters,” the DGP said, in reply to a query.

Replying to another query about links between ‘narco-terror’ and ‘terrorism’, the DGP said that earlier, they had a doubt whether these two were really linked. “As and when investigations progressed, concrete evidence came to the fore that narco-trade and terrorism are deeply not only linked but interconnected. Terrorist outfits like Al-Badr, Jaish-e-Muhammad, Lashkar-e-Toiba are behind this trade,” he said.
