The epicenter of J&K government’s second most populous organization, the J&K police has quite a few inmates and a vast space. Located in posh Peerbagh, on the Airport Road, the multi-level complex has only 298 officials including 31 gazetted officers. It includes the police chief, the government informed state legislative council on Saturday.
