Srinagar, May 15: The Inspector General of Police, Farooq Ahmad on Saturday said Kashmiri boys had immense talent but there was “need to channelize it in the right direction”.
Speaking at a function at District Police Lines Srinagar organised to welcome of City students who returned after touring New Delhi and Jaipur, the IGP said the four Kashmir students who qualified the IAS had once again proven that Kashmiris can excel in any competition.
“Our youth has immense talent but what is required is to streamline it in the right direction. As part of our social responsibility, police facilitated the tour of 58 students of various parts of the city,” the IGP said.
The IGP said in an alarming trend the many youth of the Valley were taking to drugs and indulging in unlawful activities. “It is our responsibility to save them from destruction and shape up their future in a positive and prosperous direction,” he said.
“I have never been to Taj Mahal or Ajmer. You are lucky enough to have visited these places. We will organise more such tours in near future and extend all possible facilities to the youth and students who wish to participate in positive activities,” the IGP added.
The SSP Srinagar Javid Reyaz Bedar told Greater Kashmir it was high time to give exposure to the students particularly belonging to the summer capital.
“With limited resources and avenues, most of the boys feel frustrated. We organised the tour to let them see the development and changes outside the State,” the SSP said.
On the occasion, the boys urged youth of the Valley not to waste time and risk their lives by indulging in stone pelting and other such activities. They expressed gratitude to the police top brass for facilitating the tour.
Among others, who were present in the function included DIG Central Kashmir Range Hemant Kumar Lohia.
