Srinagar, Nov 30 (KINS): Top security officials Monday said measures are being taken to prevent attacks on forces in Kashmir.
“There are already SoPs in place to prevent attacks on Security forces involved in RoPs, QRTs and clearance of roads in Kashmir. But yes, all measures including SoPs are being framed to prevent these attacks,” a top security official wishing not to be named said.
He, however, said the situation was well under control and there was no need to worry.
He said focus of the SoPs will ensure militants don’t succeed in carrying attacks on forces personnel deployed on busy areas.
“There will be a level of extra alertness to foil militants’ designs on roads,” he said, adding that “any retaliation by forces on highways and other roads can lead to civilian casualties, which our men are avoiding.”
Sources in the security grid said security review will take place to discuss threadbare the attacks by militants, while strategy will be devised to prevent killing of security forces’ personnel if militants try to target forces.
Pertinently, two army men were killed in a militant attack in Srinagar on Thursday.
The militants fired indiscriminately at a quick reaction team of Indian Army in the general area Aban Shah Chowk, HMT, Khushipora in the outskirts of Srinagar.
The IGP had described the attack as handiwork of Jaish-e-Muhammad outfit. (KINS)
