Four days after busting a Pakistan-sponsored terror module by arresting a spy involved in sharing vital information across the border, the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Jammu zone, Mukesh Singh on Wednesday visited Kishtwar to review the security scenario in this mountainous district.
While chairing a high-level meeting, the ADGP congratulated police officers for the smooth and effective conduct of this year's Machail Yatra.
