Security agencies framing strategy to counter drone threats: IG CRPF Jammu

Stating that drone threat is a new challenge, Inspector General CRPF Jammu Sector, P S Ranpise on Thursday said that the security agencies are framing a comprehensive strategy to counter it.

“Security forces are constantly strategizing to deal with the ever-increasing threat of drones,” Mr Ranpise here told reporters at the sidelines of an event.

“Drones at present are a huge threat but efforts are on to tackle the menace,” said the CRPF Jammu Sector Chief.

He said that for this, not only the central government but all security forces deployed in Jammu and Kashmir are continuously framing strategies.

He also said that the CRPF has also made elaborate security arrangements at all the pilgrimage sites, including Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine ahead of the Navratras.

“In future, special measures will be adopted to deal with the drone threats,” he said adding that CRPF is also deployed for the security in the hinterland and at all vital installations.

“CRPF along with sister concern agencies like army, police and other para-miltary forces, is also maintaining well knitted synergy to counter terrorism in the region,” he said.

Saying that Navratras are a very important and special occasion, Mr Ranpise asserted that full deployment has been made to deal with any untoward like situation for peaceful conduct of the festival season ahead.

“Not only the security of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Cave in Jammu has been beefed up ahead of Navratras but simultaneously of all religious places in the region,” he said.

Responsibility of the Road Opening Party (ROP) on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway is also with the CRPF and the troops deployed on the entire highway are not only facilitating smooth traffic movement but also keeping a hawk eye on any mischievous happening particularly related to terrorist activity.
