‘Bodies of three Rajouri youth to be exhumed soon’
Srinagar, Oct 2: Admitting that ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops has witnessed increase in the recent past, Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Friday said troops guarding the border are giving befitting reply.
Talking to reporters on the sideline of a function here police chief said Pakistani troops have been violating ceasefire not only in Jammu but in the Kashmir valley.
Unfortunately we lost some soldier and several others were injured in Pak ceasefire violation in Jammu and Kashmir during the past 24 hours, he said adding but our troops are also retaliating effectively.
He said Pak troops are violating ceasefire to facilitate infiltration by militants into Jammu and Kashmir. However Singh said our security forces guarding the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) are already on high alert to foil any attempt by Pak to send militants here.
When asked about the Shopian fake encounter, he said case investigation is in progress. We are moving forward in the case, he said adding there are some legal formalities which are being fulfilled.
He said the legal process to exhume and hand over the bodies of three youth killed in an “encounter” would be completed soon.
“The process is on. We have started whatever legal process has to be undertaken and this process will be completed soon.”
