Police begin census of residents
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Srinagar, Feb 22: The Jammu and Kashmir Police have begun a census of residents here to build a database to help them keep an eye on miscreants who may foment trouble during the coming summer in the Kashmir Valley.
Cops are visiting houses to collect details of residents, police sources said.
Besides the number of persons living in a particular dwelling, they will also seek details about the occupation of residents.
The exercise has been undertaken particularly in areas which have been notorious for street protests during the 2008-09 turmoil, the sources said.
Efforts are being made to keep a check on tenants living in rented homes to ensure that non-state elements are unable to establish a base in the city, they said.
Moreover, the data will also help in gauging the extent of unemployment in these areas so that police recruitment drives can be better focused, the sources said.
Last year, police had carried out many on-the-spot recruitment drives. However, there were complaints about youths from high employment areas benefiting more than others.
A senior police officer said the exercise has been launched to ensure better police-public cooperation.
