“The security operations will continue with full force in the state. There won’t be any impact on these operations after the fall of the elected government in J&K,” a senior security official said.

He said security officials have to work as per the law. “Everything is governed by the law and the process remains the same whether there is an elected government or Governor’s Rule”.

He said anti-militancy operations, which have resumed after end of Ramzan ceasefire, would continue and there would be no let-up in them.

Another security official said the security measures are taken as per the situation and requirement.

“Now that the ceasefire has ended, the operations against militants have been resumed. These operations will continue whether there is civilian or Governor’s Rule in the State. The security situation always remains the top priority of any government,” he said.
