The high-level review meeting comes in response to a recent surge in terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Over the past four days, terrorists have carried out attacks in four different locations across the Reasi, Kathua, and Doda districts. These incidents have resulted in the tragic deaths of nine pilgrims and a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan. Additionally, seven security personnel and several other individuals sustained injuries during these attacks.

DGP  warns locals supporting terrorism

In the wake of recent terror attacks in the valley, Director General of Police RR Swain on Thursday accused Pakistan of trying to disturb peaceful atmosphere through its mercenaries, and asserted that the Indian forces were determined to give a befitting response to the enemy. He warned the "enemy agents" that they would repent their decision of supporting terrorism and said "they have stakes including families, land and jobs unlike Pakistani terrorists who have nothing to lose."
