IGP Addresses Awami Durbar In Kupwara
Kupwara Feb 22: The Inspector General of Police (IGP)—Kashmir Range---- S M Sahai on Wednesday said the cases against the youth involved in stone pelting would be withdrawn soon.
"Cases against youth only involved in stone pelting and having no involvement in damaging public property and life will be withdrawn soon. We have referred the list of such youth to the government and are awaiting the decision," Sahai said while addressing an Awami Durbar at Zangil here in north Kashmir.
The IGP asserted that Police would always be there to support and lend a helping hand to common people in all times. Sahai sought the support and help from the general public to make the society crime free.
Appreciating role of cops and officers, the IGP said that JKP has demonstrated great “valor and courage” while maintaining law and order in the state. “It was due to efforts put in by JKP and people’s cooperation that peace was restored in the Valley,” he said and reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir Police would take all possible measures to maintain lasting peace in the state
He said police serve as a bridge between public and the government. “We have to work with more consciousness and sincerity to allow people to repose faith in the system,” he added.
The IGP said the aim of conducting Police Durbars was to come closer to the people and help in bridging the gap between the police and public.
Replying to a query about delay in clearing passport applications of Kashmiri youth and divided families, the IGP said, “More than 52000 passport applications have been cleared by security agencies during the past three months and applications of students and businessmen are cleared on priority"
He said Government is committed to enhance the salary of Special Police Officers (SPOs) and rehabilitate surrendered militants. “We have already forwarded proposals to the centre government, " he added.
Others present on the occasion were DIG north Kashmir Muneer Khan and Superintendent of Police Kupwara Tijinder Singh. Large number of people, including senior citizens, Sarpanchs and Panchs attended the meeting.
