“As the Chief Security Officers of the state, we took our responsibility of providing quality information to the security agencies, effectively supporting them with logistics and morale-boosting gestures.

“We have also brought in non-state actors like the vigilantes and the hunters to support the conventional security apparatus considering their knowledge of the terrain. On many occasions, I have had to visit the affected communities and had one-on-one dialogue with the victims as well as interact with the members of the troops on the ground.”
