New Delhi: The Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen DP Pandey on Friday chaired a joint security conference of the Army and Police in the Kashmir Valley to discuss security-related issues in the Valley. The Defence Spokesperson said in Srinagar that the high-level meeting was attended by all senior Army including GOCs, Sector Commanders and COs as well as senior police officers in Kashmir Division including the IGP, DIGs North, Central and South Kashmir, SSPs and SPs of all districts. The GOC complimented all for the good work done and urged all to strive harder.

The recent terror attacks on civilians and security forces personnel were discussed in detail. The forces also voiced concern about children of young age being manipulated by people with nefarious designs with drugs and false narratives. It was also pointed out the alarming trend of the terrorists taking refuge in Masjids and Madrassas prior to or after the act of committing terror activities in an attempt to create a communal disturbance.

The issue of the drug menace in the valley and the negative effects manifesting because of it was deliberated upon. The Corps Commander and the IGP urged the parents to reach out to their children and help arrest this regressive evil.

Among the myriad of issues discussed in the forum, the aspect of secure and smooth conduct of the Shri Amarnathji Yatra in the forthcoming summer factored prominently. The yatra this year is expected to draw a large number of pilgrims as it is being resumed after a gap of two years due to the COVID restrictions. The agencies deliberated on the safety measures to be put in place and synergised efforts at ensuring a smooth flow of traffic of yatris and provision of administrative and medical assistance from available resources.
