Pakistan pushing drugs, weapons in J&K to revive militancy: Dilbag Singh

Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbag Singh on Sunday accused Pakistan and its agencies of pushing drugs and weapons into the region to fuel and revive militancy. He said weapons and narcotics were being air-dropped through drones in the border villages of Jammu region to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere currently prevailing across the Union Territory.

“Pakistan and its agencies are pushing drugs here to generate funds for terror activities. J&K police, along with other agencies, are efficiently busting their nefarious activities. The situation on the borders has improved and we are witnessing improving peace in the UT,” said Singh.

He said weapons, along with huge consignments of narcotics, are being air-dropped in the border villages of Jammu. “We have foiled many such bids and seized huge consignments of narcotics. Recently, narcotics worth ₹2 crore were seized in Poonch,” he said. The DGP said that the weapons were meant to be handed over to the militants while the narcotics was sold and the money earned was being distributed among militants and smugglers.

“Some part of the amount is sent back to the mentors sitting across who give the same to militants infiltrating into this side to carry out IED and other attacks. We have also found interstate links in narco-terror networks. The J&K police have gone to Punjab as well,” the DGP said. In the investigation, J&K Police have joined hands with the Narcotics Control Bureau to delve deeper into the case as dozens of such modules were busted recently.

The J&K Police chief said they have been working in mission mode to consolidate peace in J&K. “We are very near to realising a terror-free J&K for which continuous cooperation of the people is important…each and every anti-peace activity would be dealt with under the law,” said Singh.
