Police Wednesday said all security measures would be ensured to prevent militants from carrying out any untoward incident in Jammu Kashmir during the visit of United States President Donald Trump to India next week.
“We are taking all necessary measures but I hope this (Trump’s) visit will pass off peacefully,” Director General of Police Dilbag Singh told reporters here.
The Police chief said many foreign dignitaries visited Kashmir in the recent past and the visits concluded without any incident.
Ahead of Trump’s India visit, Singh said no doubt there always were apprehensions of militant attacks as good number of militants were still active in the Valley.
He was replying to a query on intelligence inputs suggesting that Jaish-e-Muhammad might carry out a major attack ahead of Trump's visit to India.
“Two groups (foreign envoys) visited here and they left. All activities were normal as markets and shops were open in Kashmir during their visit. This is a good trend,” Singh said.
The US President is scheduled to visit India next week and, according to reports, the two countries could sign a trade pact.
Two foreign groups of envoys from various countries had visited Jammu Kashmir recently to assess the situation post abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the erstwhile State into two union territories in August last year.
