Union Home Minister Amit Shah conducted a review of the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, emphasizing the need for a zero-tolerance policy on terrorism. This meeting took place shortly after a gunfight in Jammu. During the meeting, Shah assessed the functioning of the security grid and measures taken to combat Pakistan-backed terrorists. He stated the importance of dismantling the terror ecosystem that supports the terrorist-separatist campaign. The meeting occurred following the shooting of four militants in a truck on the outskirts of the old city by police and security forces. Attendees included JK Lieutenant Governor, Chief of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) Samant Goel, Director (Intelligence Bureau) Tapan Deka, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, senior ministry officials, paramilitary forces, and Union Territory officers. Shah also reviewed development work in Jammu and Kashmir, emphasizing the timely completion of projects and urging officials to strive for 100 percent saturation of beneficiaries under various schemes. According to a report on December 26, militant recruitment in JK has significantly declined in 2022, reaching the lowest level in six years with recruitment staying below 100. Over the last six years, there has been a steady decline in recruitment to militant ranks, with a peak in 2018 at 206 and a subsequent decrease each year.
