Stating that the footprints of global terror outfit ISIS were not big in Kashmir, Director General Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Wednesday said a section of youth in the Valley is being radicalized.

“A section of youth is being radicalized otherwise the presence of ISIS is not that big in Kashmir," he said while addressing a press conference in Jammu.

“Kashmir is a secular society and very open but while radicalization on those lines is happening like raising of black flags, we saw the other day,” Singh said while referring to recent unveiling of ISIS flags at Jamia Masjid pulpit in old city Srinagar.

The DGP said by such acts, they want to showcase a larger presence “which is not there.”

While terming the killing of local militants as painful, he said, “The killing of youth who have picked up arms is not appreciable at all. The youth joining militancy is a matter of concern.”

Singh said that while neutralizing militants is a success but at the same times losing lives is painful and cannot be celebrated. He hoped 2019 will be better year and graph of violence comes down.
