He also expressed concern over Bitcoin and OTT platforms and asked the government to take efforts to regulate these things.
“Militants are resorting to targeted violence in Jammu and Kashmir to instil fear,” he said.
On October 12, five Army personnel, including a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO), were killed in an encounter in Dera Ki Gali (DKG) in Surankote area of Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir.
