Jammu: Pointing out that militancy in the
state has come down by 50 per cent, Jammu and Kashmir Police
DGP Kuldeep Khoda on Monday cautioned against complacency and said
the work on the front was not yet over.

"We have been able to successfully control militancy
this year. There is 50 per cent decrease in militancy this
year as compared to the last," he told reporters here after
inaugurating a 3-day police sports festival of
Jammu-Kathua-Samba range.
"As compared to the last year, more self-styled
commanders of different terror outfits have been neutralised,"
he said.

But security forces and J and K Police had to work
further to stamp out militancy completely, Khoda said.

"We still have listed militants (operating in Jammu and
Kashmir)," he said.
Regarding the cross-border infiltration, the DGP said
"there have been more infiltration attempts this year. These
have been neutralised by security forces very effectively."
