Centre orders quick withdrawal of 10,000 CAPF troops from J-Ok


New Delhi, August 19

The Centre on Wednesday ordered “immediate” withdrawal of about 10,000 paramilitary personnel from the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, officers stated.

This is the most important de-induction of those forces after extra troops had been rushed to the UT publish the abrogation of the Article 370 of the Constitution that gave the erstwhile state a singular standing.

They stated the choice was taken after the Ministry of Home Affairs reviewed the deployment of the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) within the union territory (UT).

The Home Ministry had final withdrawn 10 CAPF corporations from the UT in May, whereas 72 such models had been taken out in December final 12 months.

A senior official informed PTI {that a} complete of 100 CAPF corporations have been ordered to be withdrawn “immediately” on Wednesday they usually have been requested to revert to their base places within the nation.

As per the instructions, a complete of 40 corporations of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and 20 every of the Central Industrial Security Force, the Border Security Force and the Sashastra Seema Bal will probably be taken out from Jammu and Kashmir by this week.

The CRPF has been requested to make preparations for air lifting of those models to Delhi and different places, they stated.       A CAPF firm has an operational power of about 100 personnel.

“The units that are being withdrawn are deployed both in Jammu and Srinagar. It was felt that the counter-insurgency and counter-terrorist grid is intact in the UT and these additional units that were sent in last year can be de-inducted giving them the much required rest, recuperation and training,” a senior CAPF officer stated.

Also, he stated, with the winter quickly setting in, it will have been an onerous process to maintain these models in make-shift and momentary dwelling models particularly within the Kashmir valley area.

With the newest de-induction, the lead counter-terrorist power CRPF may have a power of about 60 battalions (about 1,000 personnel in every battalion) within the Kashmir valley aside from only a few models of the opposite CAPFs. PTI
