The DGP said Reasi district, which is also known for the revered Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, is a sensitive place and the officers need to be prompt and alert on all fronts particularly with regard to narco-terrorism and new trends of radicalisation.

Stressing on more contributions for the ‘Nasha Mukht Abhiyan’ launched by the central government, Singh directed the officers to take stringent action against people found involved in narcotics trade.
