They reviewed security arrangements deployed on the ground and interacted with officers and personnel deployed on the ground, the official said.

Asked about the attack on Gadoora Pulwama in which a non-local labourer was killed and two others injured in a grenade blast last evening, the ADGP Kumar said that two militants were behind it.
“Two LeT (militants) came on a bike. We have identified them and very soon they will be either arrested on neutralized.”
He also said that Hurriyat calls have stopped due to which all shops, markets used to be closed and children used to suffer as schools and college used to be closed down.
“After killing of a militant, thousands of people used to attend funerals and it used to glorify militants that also has stopped,” he said, adding, “Stone pelting used to happen at encounter sites which resulted in collateral damage and that has also stopped.”
He said a “good atmosphere has been created. “Public should understand the motive of militants and Pakistan. Public should cooperate with security forces so that peace is maintained,” he said.
