Killing of over 200 militants landmark for ‘peace,’ says police chief

The number of militants killed in  Jammu and Kashmir this year has crossed 200 and marks a “landmark for peace and stability”, the state police chief  said Thursday.

“Today by the collective effort of @JmuKmrPolice, Indian Army, @crpfindia, CAPF and people of Kashmir have led to neutralisation of more than 200 terrorists in the year of 2017 alone,” Director General of Police (DGP) S P Vaid tweeted.

The DGP’s tweet came on a day five militants were killed in two separate encounters by forces in Kashmir’s Budgam and Baramulla districts.

“This marks a huge landmark for establishing peace and stability in the state of J&K and our country,” the DGP added in another tweet.

According to reports quoting official figures, 200 militants have been killed by forces from 1 January till date this year, which is the highest since 2010, when 270 militants were killed.
