An action plan will be prepared to strengthen the entire security of the Jammu region in a span of three months, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Friday.

HM Shah, who reached Jammu amid tight security arrangements, was scheduled to visit Rajouri to meet the families of the victims of twin terror attacks, but could not proceed due to inclement weather conditions. However, he spoke to the families over the phone.

“My visit was aimed at meeting the family members of the victims of the Rajouri terror attack. But, I could not reach them because of bad weather conditions,” HM Shah said.

HM Shah stated that he has spoken with the families of all seven Dangri village victims and will return to meet with them soon.

“Since I could not meet them personally due to inclement weather, I held a phone conversation to join them in prayers. I have heard them very carefully and have also spoken to Lieutenant Governor Manoj (Sinha). They have shown exemplary courage in times of trouble,” he said.

“I am assuring the citizens of Jammu that whatever the intention of the terrorist organizations, our security agencies will be ready to protect Jammu,” HM Shah said.

He added that the security grid will be strengthened inside every zone within three months.

HM Shah also assured the people that the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), J&K Police, Army, and all security agencies have been instructed to ensure that incidents like this are not repeated.

On January 1 and 2, twin terror attacks in the Upper Dangri village of Rajouri district in Jammu and Kashmir resulted in seven deaths, including two children, and fourteen injuries.

HM Shah said the probe into the terror attacks has already been handed over to the National Investigation Agency.
