SRINAGAR — Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Vijay Kumar, on Friday said that hybrid militants are no longer a challenge for police and security forces.
He said the abrogation of Article 370 has put an end to the frequent strikes, closure of schools and stone pelting incidents at encounter sites.
“A year before, the hybrid militants were a challenge, but not now as we identify them at the earliest and arrest them,” he told reporters here as per news agency KNO.
Kumar said people should understand the motives of Pakistan and help the police and administration to ensure peace prevails here.
About yesterday’s Pulwama grenade attack, the top police officer said that two Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) bike-borne militants carried out the attack. “We have identified the involved militants. They will soon be either arrested or killed,” he said.
Kumar said that the markets are open today, which is an achievement for the public. “I appeal to the parents to guide their misguided children and prevent them from treading the wrong path. Those who have opted for the path should be brought back with the support of police,” he said.
