They said that among the 15 units comprising over 1,500 personnel, 8 are being withdrawn from the Kashmir region, three from Jammu and four from Ladakh.

The order by Ministry of Home Affairs follows the withdrawal of 10 CAPF companies, three belonging to the CISF, and the ITBP each besides two each from the CRPF and the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), last week.
