Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbag Singh Tuesday reviewed the security situation in Kishtwar district, where a prominent RSS leader was shot dead last week, and ordered strengthening of arrangements ahead of the April 18 polls.
Kishtwar is part of the Udhampur Lok Sabha constituency.
"The DGP called for establishment of new Special Operation Group (SOG) camps, checking points and bunkers (pickets) in the district and advised all the security forces deployed in the district to work in coordination in order to neutralise militants," a police spokesperson said.
Senior RSS leader Chanderkant Sharma and his PSO were killed by a terrorist in Kishtwar district hospital on April 9, prompting imposition of curfew in the communally sensitive town and adjoining areas.
Earlier on Tuesday, day curfew was lifted in Kishtwar.
"Noose must be tightened around the militants and their over ground workers," Singh said.
The DGP held meetings with officers to take stock of the preparedness for the elections and addressed police, Army and Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel deployed for the polls.
Singh directed the officers to ensure no untoward incident takes place and polling is held smoothly in Kishtwar.
"Action should be taken against trouble mongers after identifying them," he said.
On law and order front, the DGP advised his officers to reach out to every section of the society in order to gain confidence of the general public.
