Srinagar, May 14: Militancy in Jammu and Kashmir is on the decline but it will take some more time to finish it completely, CRPF Director General Prakash Mishra said here on Thursday.

“The graph of militancy is on the decline in Jammu and Kashmir, but it will take more time to finish it completely,” the chief of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) told the media on the sidelines of a CRPF recruits passing out parade here.

He said there was growing enthusiasm among the local youth to join the CRPF which was quite “encouraging”.

Mishra said the CRPF would discharge its duties effectively in providing security during the forthcoming Amarnath Yatra together with the state police and other security agencies.
