Jammu and Kashmir: Shrinking Extremist Space

By Ajit Kumar Singh

As a result of sustained operational successes, many areas of J&K are now free of terrorism. On January 3, 2011, Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda had claimed that five out of 10 Districts of the Jammu region - Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Reasi and Udhampur - were completely free of militancy. Doda District had been cleared of all foreign mercenaries. Again, on August 19, 2011, Inspector General of Police (IGP, Jammu) Dilbagh Singh had declared that militancy in the Reasi District had been completely wiped out. Out of a total 153 terrorism-related fatalities in the State in 2011, 112 - including 69 militants, 27 SF personnel and 16 civilians - occurred in the Valley, while the remaining 41 - including 29 militants, seven SF personnel and five civilians - were located in the Jammu Division. The dramatic decline of militancy is visible in available statistics.-- Ajit Kumar Singh
