The Northlines - - FRONT PAGE - JAMMU, NOV 06 (KIP)

Sev­eral com­pa­nies of Indo-ti­betian Border Po­lice ( ITBP) have been dis­patched to Jammu and Kash­mir for the pur­pose of up­grad­ing the se­cu­rity grid dur­ing the en­su­ing Pan­chayat elec­tions.

Some of these com­pa­nies may be de­ployed in the sen­si­tive ar­eas of the re­gion of Jammu where two BJP lead­ers were killed re­cently which re­sulted in the de­ploy­ment of the Army and cur­few re­stric­tions in the twin towns of Kisht­war and Bhader­wah.

Once these ITBP com­pa­nies were de­ployed in the sen­si­tive ar­eas there may not be any need for call­ing out the Army to main­tain law and or­der.of­fi­cial sources in­di­cated that de­ploy­ment of ITBP com­pa­nies could mo­ti­vate vot­ers to par­tic­i­pate in the Pan­chayat elec­tions af­ter the very poor per­cent­age of polling in the Kash­mir val­ley dur­ing the re­cent ULB elec­tions.

In­di­ca­tions were that these com­pa­nies may look af­ter the ac­tiv­i­ties of mil­i­tants that too in the hilly ar­eas of Ra jo uri, po on ch, ki sh war,b hader­wah and Bani­hal. These ITBP com­pa­nies have been dis­patched to re­duce the chances of com­mu­nal trou­ble.
