Jammu: Pointing out that militancy in the state has come down by 50 per cent, Jammu and Kashmir Police DGP Kuldeep Khoda today cautioned against complacency and said the work on the front was not yet over. 'We have been able to successfully control militancy this year. There is 50 per cent decrease in militancy this year as compared to the last,' he told reporters here after inaugurating a 3-day police sports festival of Jammu-Kathua-Samba range. 'As compared to the last year, more self-styled commanders of different terror outfits have been neutralised,' he said. But security forces and J and K Police had to work further to stamp out militancy completely, Khoda said. 'We still have listed militants (operating in Jammu and Kashmir),' he said. Regarding the cross-border infiltration, the DGP said 'there have been more infiltration attempts this year. These have been neutralised by security forces very effectively.'
