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.
