Four companies of the paramilitary forces are now being withdrawn from the hills, sources report.
It has been found that the Supreme Court has directed the forces to withdraw from the hills. Before this, seven companies of the paramilitary forces had been instructed to withdraw from the mountains even when the state government had objected the decision.
At present, there are eight paramilitary forces posted in the region; out of which four have been instructed to come back.
As per sources, the Supreme Court will be posting the paramilitary forces in the election areas and in Kashmir.
