Srinagar: Pakistan is unable to tolerate the peaceful atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir, said Director General of Police, Dilbag Singh said on Friday. His comments came after terrorists shot dead two policemen and wounded another on the outskirts of Srinagar.
“We have placed extended deployments at many places in the city and outside it for the August 15 (Independence Day) function. We were also increasing the deployment on the outskirts (of the city). It is unfortunate that a deployment team was attacked on the outskirts of the city in Nowgam and two jawans were killed and another injured,” Singh told reporters.
“We are all aware of the situation in Kashmir where the terrorists regularly try to target civilians, police and forces and sometimes they succeed, but at the same time, the police and forces keep on taking actions to improve the situation,” he said.
“We will intensify the (anti-militancy) operations in the coming days, but such incidents take place because Pakistan and its proxies cannot tolerate the peaceful atmosphere here. Such conspiracies are hatched from across the border and they try to create hurdles in the way to peace. However, I am confident that our efforts to strengthen peace will continue,” he added.
