The DG said strategy, training and new SOPs had been formulated.

"Using non-lethal ammunition mostly, we along with JK police have devised a strategy to put to work during strikes and stone pelting and you will see its effect soon," he said.

The DG was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function held for widows of paramilitary personnel killed on duty. Among the personnel killed was Commandant Pramod Kumar, who died in a militant attack on August 15 last year.

On counter-insurgency operations in Kashmir, Bhatnagar said security forces were meeting with success.
