J&K Police is facing multiple challenges on many fronts
“But more needs to be done to root out the terrorism completely from J&K. Narco-terrorism is fast emerging as a biggest challenge and if it is not dealt in time, it can take the shape of a cancer. For eradicating militancy, you need to destroy all its off-shoots and tools supporting it,” the LG said.
“In other states, challenges for police are less compared to J&K. Here, police have to maintain law and order, deal with social crimes, criminals, militancy and subversive elements,” the LG said
and hailed the police force for facing all challenges bravely and in a professional manner.
At the same event DGP of Kashmir Dilbagh Singh said, “Narco-terrorism was the biggest challenge for police forces as the neighboring country wants to destroy the new generation on one hand and pump the money earned out of narco-sale to fuel militancy.”
