Movement of paramilitary convoys by road will continue in J&K: Home Ministry

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Union Home Ministry has said, the movement of paramilitary convoys by road for logistical and operational reasons will continue in Jammu and Kashmir as it is necessary.

In a statement, the Ministry also said, it has significantly enhanced air courier services in all sectors to cut travel time of troops. The clarification came in the wake of reports suggesting that the central government has rejected a proposal to ferry personnel of paramilitary forces from the Jammu-Srinagar sector by chopper.

The Ministry rejected media reports that air transit facility in the Jammu-Srinagar sector for CRPF troops has not been allowed. It said, air courier service for transportation of jawans of Central Armed Paramilitary Forces are already in operation for quite some time.
