Former Union Minister P. Chidambaram on Monday said the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act in force in Jammu and Kashmir should be amended."There is a need to amend the AFSPA if you cannot repeal it. The law and order duties should be entrusted to the Jammu and Kashmir Police and not paramilitary forces," the Rajya Sabha member said here.Congress leader Chidambaram, Chairman of a parliamentary panel on home affairs, said deployment of paramilitary forces in the state should be curtailed, which would lower violence in the militancy-hit state.
