SRINAGAR: As the Centre’s special representative for Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma began his five-day visit to the state today, the CRPF said there were inputs about militants stepping up violence to disrupt the peace initiative.
“There is an input. May be a grenade throwing, may be hit and run attack. There is an indication that they (militants) may step up violence,” Inspector General of CRPF Ravideep Singh Sahi told reporters here today.
He said, “Whenever any such step (dialogue) is taken, which leads to peace, the enemy will not want it. So, they may try to step up the attacks.”
Sahi said while the situation in Kashmir was under control, the security forces need to remain alert.
“We keep on receiving inputs about militant activities and their movements. We are alert and the situation is under control,” he said.
The IG CRPF said militants do not have a permanent base in the summer capital here but maintain their presence in the city. (AGENCIES)
