Baramulla, Nov 4: Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police (DGP) RR Swain on Saturday said the winter strategy of police is to ensure safety of security forces personnel and the civilians.
Talking to reporters after visiting slain cop’s home in Tangmarg to express condolences to the bereaved family, DGP Swain said that police have got vital leads in the case of killing of policeman and those involved won’t be spared.
“We have lost a family member of police parivaar, an honest man besides a father, brother and also a Kashmiri,” he said. “Those involved in the killings whether here or the cross won’t be spared. Those who provided any support to killers will also be taken to task.”
He said there is no doubt that the handlers across the border are trying to disturb peace here and they are not sending money here to build hospitals, roads and other things but narcotics, arms and ammunition to support terrorism.
“We will be able to spoil their plans only when no one here supports them and we create that atmosphere here,” the newly appointed DGP Swain said. “When there will be no one to support terrorism, they will themselves stop sending infiltrators.”
Asked about how many terrorists were involved in the attack, the DGP said that as of now it’s feasible to reveal the details at this point. The matter is being investigated and can’t share the details, however they have got vital leads and they are working on it.
About mode of infiltrations especially during the onset of winters, the DGP Swain said that the infiltrations would be seriously looked into.
The efforts will be made and won’t let any of the security men or a civilian to fell prey to bullets, those indulged in supporting terrorism will be taken to task, the DGP added.
The Police chief was accompanied by the ADGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar, DIG North Kashmir Vivek Gupta, SSP Baramulla Amod Nagpur besides others.
It’s worth mentioning that a policeman, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, a father of seven daughters, and the family’s sole breadwinner was killed on Tuesday after being attacked by the unidentified militants near his residence at Wailoo Tangmarg.
The attack on the cop came a day after a non-local labourer was shot dead by the suspected militants in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Before that, a police inspector was attacked while playing cricket in Eidgah, Srinagar. He continues to battle for life at SKIMS, Soura.
Soon after the back to back attacks emerged across the valley, security was put on a high alert and a necessary security check was being done in places which are somehow sensitive in nature. “All the entry and exits were being manned besides, extra vigil mode was activated to ensure peace.”
