FC GILGIT

Raised in: 1988 Sanctioned Platoons 10

Introduction

The administration of Gilgit Baltistan approached the Federal Government during 1985 for deployment of 12 FC platoons to provide assistance for maintaining law and order in the area. In pursuance of the demand, initially four FC platoons were deployed which were reinforced by additional platoons during the sectarian strife of 1986. In wake of the aggravating situation and compelling demands, Gilgit was incorporated as FC District in 1988 and more platoons were deployed. Since then FC has been effectively engaged in countering the menace of sectarian violence. It has been deployed in Chillas, Gilgit city and Central Jail, Gilgit. FC is performing duties in a composite force called Karakorum Task Force which is dedicated to protecting the Karakorum highway. In recent past, FC took part in many operations conducted in Diamer Region in collaboration with military and district police. FC Gilgit took the lead role in Darail operation launched in August, 2013 in which numerous terrorists involved in Nanga Parbat incident were apprehended.
