BSF and ITBP ordered to replace CRPF for static guard duties in Srinagar

The reports of BSF and ITBP deployment comes after it was reported that the Ministry of Home Affairs has ordered 100 additional companies of CRPF, BSF, ITBP, and SSB to be moved to Jammu and Kashmir.

In the wake of the ghastly attack in Pulwama, that claimed 44 lives of CRPF personnel and the subsequent multi-prong strategy to corner Pakistan and its sympathisers, the government has been taking several steps. There are also several changes being noticed in Jammu and Kashmir. As per latest reports, ITBP and BSF companies have been ordered to replace CRPF for static guard duties in Srinagar.

In an order released by the Zonal Police Headquarters Kashmir, the duty of static guards until now assumed by CRPF will now be taken over by the Border Security Force and Indo-Tibetan Border Force in a bid to strengthen the security apparatus in the city of Srinagar.

The reports of BSF and ITPB deployment comes after it was reported that the MHA has ordered 100 additional companies of CRPF, BSF, ITBP, and SSB to be moved to Jammu and Kashmir.

Many Hurriyat and Jamat-e-Islami leaders have also been detained as per reports.

On February 14, a Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorist rammed a vehicle laden with 300Kgs of explosives into the 70-vehicles CRPF convoy, killing 40 of its soldiers. The Prime Minister then chaired a CCS meet with his cabinet and top security officials, granting all the freedom to the security forces to exact revenge at a place, time and format of their choice.

Diplomatic pressure is being mounted upon Pakistan to escalate the cost of harboring and nurturing terrorists on its land. Yesterday, the UNSC condemned the dastardly attack on the CRPF convoy, naming and shaming JeM and reprimanding Pakistan to for its inability in reining in such elements operating from its land. It has also been stripped of the Most Favoured Nation status by India.
