This was the first interaction between DGP Swain and Lt Gen Dwivedi since the former took over the charge on October 31.

Police and other security agencies are on high alert across Jammu and Kashmir, especially along the Line of Control, to thwart any infiltration attempt by terrorists before heavy snowfall blocks the traditional passes in the high mountains.

Anti-terrorist operations have also been intensified in the villages close to forests and borders as part of an area domination exercise.

On Sunday, DGP Swain visited Rajouri and interacted with field officers. He also chaired a meeting of the officers of the army and central armed forces.

Swain had said that “Jammu and Kashmir Police is best force to fight terrorism as no one knows the topography and demography as we do.”

During the meeting with the officers of different forces besides sister agencies, all officers vowed to continue proactive actions against terrorism and their supporters.

Revisiting and rejuvenating border police posts with the support and synergy of other forces was also discussed along with strengthening the intelligence and border security grids.

Swain also felicitated the officers and personnel who participated in the recent Behrote Top encounter where a foreign terrorist was killed.
