Srinagar: Security forces have got several concrete leads in the Rajouri attack case in which seven civilians were killed, J&K Police chief Dilbag Singh said on Tuesday.
Singh said several people who were in contact with the alleged militants have been questioned and the police will “achieve success very soon”.
He said the security forces have launched operations in the area four times, but so far, there has not been any success.
“We have got many solid proofs during the investigation. We have the details of many people who came in their contact, some of them have been questioned as well. Arrests will be made as per the requirement. This process is on and I am hopeful that we will achieve success very soon,” the J-K director general of police told reporters here.
Seven people belonging to a particular community were killed and 14 others injured in Dhangri village of Rajouri on January 1 and 2.
Asked about deputy chief of Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, Abdul Rehman Makki, being designated as global terrorist by UN Security Council, Singh said the move will help tighten the noose around the perpetrators of militancy in J-K and across the country.
“Those prominent characters perpetrating (militancy) in J-K and other parts of India from across the border for a long time now have become infamous at the national and the international levels. People across the world know their mischiefs,” he said.
The J-K police chief said the process to tighten them up is on, under which the people involved in militancy in any way are being notified as militants at an individual level.
“This will definitely have an impact…the world comes to know that person’s profile. The national and international platforms, the groups of countries, which work on counter-(militancy), they also come to know about them and what they have done. It helps to tighten their noose at the national and international levels,” he said.
