Srinagar: Minister of state for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir Friday said the situation in Kashmir was under control and the government forces were capable of dealing with militants both within the valley and infiltrating from across the Line of Control.
“There is no rise (in militancy). We have been foiling the infiltration attempts and we will continue to do so. The soldiers are fighting the infiltrators and terrorists (sic),” Ahir told reporters after taking part in Dussehra celebrations at BSF’s Humhama camp here.
The minister also took part in the ‘Shastra (weapons) puja’ as part of Dussehra celebrations.
