Srinagar Peaceful, No Presence of Terrorism: IG CRPF

Srinagar, Oct 03 (KNS): The Inspector General of CRPF (Srinagar Sector), Ajay Kumar Yadav, reiterated on Tuesday that Srinagar is a district characterized by peace and devoid of any militancy presence.

During his address to reporters at this empowering event, IG Yadav highlighted the noteworthy contributions of women CRPF personnel in various operations. These operations encompass a broad spectrum, ranging from counter-insurgency endeavors to airport security, road opening parties (RoPs), and the crucial task of jail security. The IG emphasized that women have become integral participants in these sensitive operations, demonstrating their competence and dedication.

In response to a direct inquiry regarding the presence of terrorism in Srinagar, the IG CRPF swiftly dispelled any such notion.
