Laying emphasis on the preparedness of the security forces for the tough days ahead, the outgoing Director General of the CRPF said priority should be given to equipping the troops for the emerging challenges of law and order and militancy.

Director General K Durga Prasad, who retires on February 28, on Sunday concluded his two-day visit to the Kashmir valley, a CRPF spokesman said in a statement here.

Prasad addressed the CRPF troops deployed in the Kashmir valley in an elaborate Sainik Sammelan at Regional Training Centre, Humhama, paying rich tributes to Commandant Promod Kumar, who lost his life in an encounter with militants in the old city here on August 15, 2016, and other slain personnel who died fighting militants.

He also “applauded the daredevilry” of Commandant Chetan Cheeta, who was critically injured in another encounter with militants in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on February 14, the spokesman added.

The DG laid stress on the preparedness of the force “for the tough days ahead” and giving priority to equipping the troops for the “emerging challenges on the law and order and terrorism fronts”.
