The total number of terrorists who attempted infiltration from Pakistan occupied Kashmir also decreased by 33 percent.

There has been a 54 percent reduction of terrorist initiated violence in Jammu and Kashmir. As against 395 incidents prior to 5th August last year, it is 181 post that date till now. Eighty percent of the total 1391 law and order incidents in the past year were reported during the first three months of August, September, and October.

The situation improved dramatically as average law and order related incidents fell from 370 per month to the current rate of 28 per month.
