CRPF camps in Kashmir facing attacks

There have been attempts at intrusion into more than one-third of the camps of the Central Reserve Police Force in the Kashmir Valley in the past 50 days, a senior Home Ministry official said on Wednesday.

The CRPF has been redeployed in at least 40 locations in Kashmir, including Srinagar, from where the force was withdrawn in 2010 as a confidence-building measure.

The official said that of the 600 camps in the Valley, 242 have been attacked or targeted for intrusion.

A CRPF official posted in Srinagar said the camps were bursting at the seams as 700 companies (approximately 70,000 men) had been deployed in the Valley.

“This type of organised attack was not there in 2010, the last time the Valley erupted in violence. Already 242 camps have been attacked and we have taken extra measures to secure the premises,” said the official.

Though curfew has been lifted in the Valley, stone-throwing at security personnel have not stopped.
