New Delhi: Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram on Thursday said that the army was deployed in Kashmir on the request of the Jammu and Kashmir state government in order to control the volatile situation in the valley.

Authorities deployed the army to control unrest in the Kashmir valley on Wednesday a day after police fired at hundreds of protesters, killing four civilians, the latest violence in a region.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs briefing in New Delhi, Chidambaram said that the state police and the paramilitary troopers were patrolling in most of the areas, and the Army was just kept on a standby.

According to Agence India Press reporter, Chidambaram said, as you are aware, the Army was deployed at the request of the government of Jammu and Kashmir. While I am not at liberty to disclose where it is being deployed, I can assure you that most of the places which are affected are still being patrolled at the curfew imposed by the J&K police and the paramilitary forces.

Chidambaram expressed the hope that the army requirement would only be for a short period, and the situation would soon be under control.

“The purpose of deploying the Army was to serve a deterrent effect. I repeat that, the major burden of enforcing law and order and the curfew is being borne by the J&K police and the CRPF. Army will be deployed as long as it is necessary but I sincerely hope it will not be necessary for too long,” he said.

The minister further requested the people of Jammu and Kashmir to cooperate and stay inside their homes till the curfew is lifted.

Chidambaram also asked the people not to resort to stone-pelting and other violent acts to aggravate the situation.
