Union home secretary Rajiv Gauba Tuesday asked the heads of various security agencies to take such foolproof measures that the militants who attack forces’ camps are handled outside only and not allowed any room to enter inside.
Gauba visited Lehtpora CRPF camp where two fidayeen militants killed five troopers in a daredevil attack on 31 December last year. He interacted with CRPF troopers at the camp.
“He took stock of the damage caused by the attack and lauded the soldiers for their efforts in fighting militants,” a source said.
Director general of police SP Vaid, inspector general of CRPF (operations) Zulfikar Hassan and other CRPF officers accompanied Gauba who is learnt to have assured to police, army and CRPF of all possible support in enhancing their capacity to foil possible strikes by the militants on force’s installations across Kashmir.
A CRPF official who accompanied Gauba said security of Lethpora camp has been upgraded on home ministry’s directions, which had asked all vital forces’ installations to review security and plug loopholes besides raising height of boundary walls, updating existing alarm system and increasing the number of guards at entrance gates..
