Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police, R R Swain, addressed the press following his visit to the family of fallen police constable Bodh Raj in Samba.

Swain affirmed the resilience of law enforcement against the persistent challenge of terrorism, stating, “This challenge (terrorism) is not going to overwhelm us.” He emphasized the strategic importance of local support and community involvement in defeating nefarious designs originating from across the border.
The DGP acknowledged the unique challenges faced by Jammu and Kashmir, being a border area, and discussed the evolving threats, including the use of drones. He announced stringent measures against those receiving consignments from drones, categorizing them as “real enemies of the nation” who will be dealt with firmly under tough laws.
During his visit, DGP Swain commemorated the brave sacrifice of constable Bodh Raj, who lost his life in a car bomb blast in Srinagar in 2000. Addressing Raj’s family, he encouraged dedication and honesty, assuring ongoing support from the Jammu and Kashmir Police institution. The Deputy Commissioner of Samba, Abhishek Sharma, pledged comprehensive assistance to the bereaved family.
As Jammu and Kashmir remains steadfast in its commitment to counter-terrorism, the DGP’s remarks underscore the necessity of a unified front involving law enforcement, intelligence, and the local populace to ensure the region’s safety and stability.
