Director general of police (DGP) K Rajendra Kumar on Sunday asked SSPs of border districts, including Jammu, Samba and Kathua, to lay joint check points on all the infiltration routes.
The DGP said this in a meeting with Jammu-based senior officers.
He said, “All border police stations, police posts, village defence committee members be strengthened and proper briefing be given to them by supervisory offices regularly regarding nature of duties to be performed by them in view of present security scenario/huge build up of militants across the border. Night patrolling on the national highway be conducted and a close liaison be maintained with all forces deployed in their areas of jurisdictions”.
He further directed all the forces, including intelligence agencies, to pay special attention to the area where fencing has been damaged on the IB.
The officers were directed to maintain the highest level of alertness and co-ordination among themselves and also to share the intelligence-related information directly in real time basis to foil the nefarious designs of the anti-national elements and their mentors across the International Border.
The DGP also discussed about the planned security arrangements in connection with the forthcoming religious festivals and Darbar move at the winter capital Jammu.
He was informed that to ensure adequate arrangements for Navratra at Katra and Jammu, two meetings were held with all stake holders for the smooth conduct of the events.
He also informed that social media have become very important in modern times, which have some advantages and disadvantages, but we are very careful to counter any false propaganda by miscreants.
The DGP said that vulnerable points have been identified on the national highway and adequate deployment will be made to plug these points to prevent the Udhampur-like incident.
He stressed upon the participants to take stern action against miscreants and if required, book them under public safety act (PSA).
He also directed the range DIGs and district SSPs to mobilise their resources available to them for generation of advance intelligence-relating information.
The DGP said there is need to focus more on drug trafficking to curb the menace among young generation.
