Srinagar, Feb 12: Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir zone, S M Sahai, on Monday asked people to come forward and help police to eradicate crime from the society.
“Close rapport and liaison between police and the general public is of utmost importance and indispensable, for eradication of crime from the society, particularly in the backdrop of increasing graph in crime in some areas of the Valley. I appeal people to come forward and have full faith and confidence in police,” the IGP said while addressing a police-public meet at Awantipora in south Kashmir.
The IGP while addressing another police-public meet at Budgam in central Kashmir asked policemen to be in close proximity with the public to gain their confidence and always be ready to lend a helping hand to them, which is envisaged in the preamble of JK Police.
A police spokesman said that large number of people attended the police-public meets at both the places and demanded that police should hold recruitment drives to overcome unemployment in the area.
He said the people of Awantipora and adjoining areas lauded the role of police in checking the menace of narcotics in certain areas of Awantipora and bringing the cultivation to zero percent. “People demanded similar action against the fake Saffron traders, in Pampore area, which has ruined the lives of genuine cultivators and have brought a bad name to saffron industry in the area,” the spokesman said, adding that the IGP assured the people of immediate and stringent legal action against the erring traders.
“In a similar meet at Budgam, the IGP assured of more people-friendly programmes by the Police, in the district under the Civil action programmes. The IGP asserted that these programmes are aimed to come close to people and make them acquaint about the true image of the Police,” the spokesman said.
He said the IGP was flanked by Deputy Inspector Generals of Police-A G Mir, Shafkat Ali Watali, Superintendents of Police-Awantipora and Budgam, Muhammad Arshad, and Uttam Chand, during these meets.
