The Justice (retd) M. L. Koul Commission appointed by the Omar Abdullah led previous coalition government to probe into the killings of 2010 in Kashmir which submitted its 320 page report to the incumbent Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has suggested to the government to avoid deploying Para-military Central Reserve Police Force in any part of the valley to deal with the protesters. The Commission has maintained that offending postures and dictatorial attitude by local administration should always be avoided in the modern age of awareness.

The Koul Commission has maintained that the local police should always be responsible in meeting out the law and order situation and should no call other security forces time and again to help them in maintaining law and order.

“We also deeply impress that in all the cognizable cases the concerned police stations should register FIR’s and investigation should be undertaken forthwith to make every wrong does accountable. Besides the presence of Magistrates should be made compulsory in every disturbed area as soon as it is smelt that law and order is under threat,” the Commission has said adding that the local law and order problems should be handled in coordination and cooperation with all the stakeholders mainly members of the civil society and the responsible dignities of the localities.

Lamenting over the dictatorial attitude of the local administration, the Koul Commission has maintained that the administration should develop constitutional, social and people friendly culture with the public for whose service they are posted in different administrative segments.
