JAMMU, Feb 14: Governor Satya Pal Malik has strongly condemned the
terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy at Pulwama in which many CRPF
personnel lost their lives. He has conveyed his grief and sincere
sympathy to the families of the brave soldiers who had lost their
lives in this attack and prayed for early recovery of all those
injured in this gruesome attack.
Expressing serious concern about the terrorist attack on security
forces Governor observed that the Forces responsible for insurgency in
J&K are desperate and frustrated and they just want to prove their
presence. Visibly it seems to be guided from across the Border as

actions will not deter the resolve of our Security Forces and people,
and we will finish these inimical forces to the last.
Governor has urged all the Security Forces Commanders to enhance
surveillance on every front and directed the District and Divisional
Civil and Police Administration to immediately review the security
management of all important installations and establishments.
