Be more watchful and alert, elements inimical to peace desperate to disrupt law & order: DGP J&K

SRINAGAR, JUNE 10: Jammu and Kashmir must see an end to terrorism which has brought endless pain and destruction to the people of this beautiful place. J&K Police along with Army and CAPFs are working in that direction tirelessly. This was stated by the Director General of Police J&K Shri Dilbag Singh during his visit to the J&K Police Cargo building in Srinagar today.

Soon after the inauguration, the DGP interacted with the officers and jawans in the elite Cargo unit of J&K Police. He complimented various police districts and units who along with Army and CRPF carried out successful operations against terrorists. The agenda of Pakistani handlers and agencies are to keep this place in turmoil and people in agony are responsible for regular innocent killings of locals and attacks on security forces involved in dismantling the peaceful environment.

Lauding the role of CAPFs including BSF, SSB, CISF, ITBP and ESPECIALLY CRPF who has rendered significant services shoulder to shoulder with JKP day and night in providing a better security environment to this place, he exalted its field commanders & all ranks and expressed his compliments and gratitude to them all. JKP shares its sacrifices and laurels with them, he added. He said together we will achieve our mission of having a peaceful and happy era for the people we serve here and who have lost so much due to evil designs of a hostile untrustworthy neighbour.

He expressed anguish over the 3 civilian killings by the terrorists and assured that the culprits would be brought to justice for which efforts are on. In all these cases the terrorists have been identified and they would be exposed to people for their inhuman acts of violence.

He congratulated a boy who even after joining terrorists realised the futility of this wrong path has come back and re-united with his family. He hoped that an appeal made by the family of another youth from South Kashmir to their son who went missing a few days back would have desired impact on him. The DGP assuresd such youth who have gone astray under various pressures in the recent past would be assisted by police in case they choose to return back leaving the dreadful path forced on them by vested elements.

He urged all ranks of police, army and CAPFs to be people friendly and compassionate during the conduct of various duties, while being equally tough with the perpetrators of violence and combating terrorism forced on the people by Pakistan and its agencies. The commitment, devotion and synergy among JKP and different security agencies is paying rich dividends and we shall continue to have oneness in our thoughts and actions while upholding the security and sovereignty of our country.

We are committed in providing a more peaceful atmosphere for the people of J&K,” he said, and added that Pakistan sponsored terror outfits shall be dealt with adequate responses.
