IG Ops Kashmir

It is a matter of great pride and privilege for me to be at the helm of the Kashmir Ops Sector. Established in 2005, the Kashmir Ops Sector exercises Operational jurisdiction over three Ops Ranges and 26 Battalions in Anantnag, Kulgam, Awantipura, Pulwama, Shopian, Budgam, Bandipora, Baramulla, Kupwara, Handwara and Sopore Districts.

The Kashmir Ops Sector remains committed to maintain peace and tranquility in the Kashmir Valley. Every year, we endeavor to provide fool-proof security cover to all pilgrims participating in the Shri Amarnathji Yatra. On 16/06/2017, the Kashmir Ops Sector established the “Madadgar” helpline with toll free number 14411 to provide 24x7 assistance to citizens in dire need. It is heartening to see the overwhelming response towards Madadgar.

The valour and sacrifice of this Sector has been widely recognized over the years with a benevolent Nation bestowing 6 Kirti Chakras, 7 Shaurya Chakras, 15 President’s Police Medals for Gallantry and 532 Police Medals for Gallantry upon Officers and personnel of this Sector.

Kashmir Ops Sector plays an important role in upholding internal security in the valley under adverse geographical and climatic conditions. Counter Insurgency Operations are conducted in complete synergy with the State Police, Army and other security Forces resulting in several exemplary successes and achievements.
