Dilbag Singh said that the safety and security of the people is our prime concern and every design of the elements inimical to peace should be foiled firmly. He said that JKP along with other sister agencies has enforced the rule of law after facing tough challenges and have succeeded in maintaining a sense of security among the minds of the people. Public cooperation has helped to make our efforts fruitful and the Organization is giving impetus to strengthen relations with the people for the eradication of crimes from the society.
Referring to the recent incidents in Valley, the DGP said that militants are making all-out attempts to disrupt the situation in Jammu and Kashmir to please their masters across the border and added that our forces are committed and capable enough to counter any anti-peace act.
The DGP directed the officers to maintain close surveillance of such elements trying to disrupt the fast returning peaceful atmosphere and take all measures to neutralise such attempts. He said that the militants involved in the killing of Sarpanch Syed Rafiq and RD employee Sheikh Zahoor at Hakura have been identified as Junaid and Zubair of HM and ensured that they will be brought to law.
The DGP reiterated that nobody is above law and one who breaks the law would be dealt with firmly. He said that while dealing with any situation, it should be ensured that law-abiding people are not put to any inconvenience during their day-to-day activities.
Further DGP directed the officers to strengthen the Nakas established across the valley and augment the security grids to ensure a safe and secure environment for the citizens of the valley. DGP stressed that the action against the terrorist should be continued and all the suspicious elements should be kept under check so as to foil their ill designs aimed at disrupting normal lives of the people.
The spokesman said that DGP reiterated that the support of community members is essential and more and more public cooperation should be ensured by prioritising community-based programmes. All possible help be exercised in case of bad weather.
