Enforce security plans vigorously in J&K: Govt to security forcesJuly 12, 2017 19:11
Security agencies engaged in anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir have been told by the Centre to implement security plans with full vigour.
The directive from the central government came in the wake of the killing of seven Amarnath pilgrims in a terror attack on Monday.
Security agencies were told to implement the security plans vigorously, a home ministry official said, indicating that the anti-militancy operations will be intensified.
Two central ministers - Jitendra Singh and Hansraj Ahir, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, and Central Reserve Police Force Director General of Police R R Bhatnagar have visited the Kashmir Valley in the last two days.
The instructions have been given to all forces engaged in anti-militancy operations, the official said.
Highest level of alert has already been sounded across Jammu and Kashmir while Amarnath pilgrims will be provided enhanced security along the two pilgrimage routes.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and ordered enhanced security for the Amarnath Yatra following the terror attack on devotees.
The home minister took stock of the prevailing situation in Kashmir Valley, particularly on the routes to the shrine located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 12,756 feet, during an hour-long meeting.
