Jammu and Kashmir: After completing Article 370, the action of accelerated security forces, four times the terrorists killed on the martyrdom of each young man
The Minister of State said that there are currently 16 thousand 427 active private agencies in the country. The government must approve private security agencies before they can operate.
Two and a half years after Article 370 was removed from Jammu and Kashmir, peace has yet to return to the valley. Particularly due to Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, news of an encounter between security forces and terrorists is reported in the Union Territory. The government reported in Parliament that 109 security force members have been martyred here since Jammu and Kashmir were granted special state status. However, four terrorists have also been killed as a result of each young man’s martyrdom.
In a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Home Minister Nityanand Roy stated that 439 terrorists have been killed in Jammu and Kashmir since August 5, 2019 (the day the special state status became effective). In the meantime, 98 ordinary citizens have also been killed in terrorist attacks. Property worth Rs 5.3 crore has also been damaged. Despite the security forces’ campaign against terror, no public property was damaged in the process.
There are currently more than 16 thousand private security agencies licensed in the country
In his written reply, Rai also answered the question posed by AIADMK MP Vijaykumar, asking how many private security agencies are working at the present time. There are currently 16 thousand 427 private agencies in the country with active licenses, according to Rai. It is important to note that private security agencies require government approval to function.
