Centre to send additional forces to Kashmir

The Centre has decided to send nearly 2000 Central paramilitary force personnel to Kashmir Valley.



New Delhi: The Centre has decided to send
nearly 2000 Central paramilitary force personnel to
violence-hit Kashmir Valley, while another 3,200, currently
based in the state, will be redeployed in trouble-torn areas.

The additional forces are being sent following a
request from Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to
the Centre to help tackle the situation in the Valley, which
has been hit by a fresh wave of protests.

Official sources said 19 companies (1,900 personnel)
of Central paramilitary forces will reach Kashmir Valley
within a day or two from outside the state.

32 companies (3,200 personnel) currently posted in
different parts of Jammu and Kashmir will be redeployed in the
trouble-torn 10 districts of the Kashmir Valley.
