Srinagar, June 2: The Jammu and Kashmir Police are making every effort to stop Khanyar shootout like incidents for smooth tourism. Police investigations to track down the people behind the incident is going on at fast pace.
Seven paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) men were wounded when gunmen opened fire on them in Khanyar area of Srinagar last Wednesday. The attack was owned by two little known militant outfits.
Director General of Police (DGP) K Rajendra Kumar said that these are isolated incidents and every effort was being made to stop such incidents. “We won’t allow such incidents to happen in future,” Rajendra told Greater Kashmir.
The senior police officer said that Khanyar incident was an isolated one. “We are looking into that and investigations were going on fast pace,” he said and hoped that the culprits behind the shootout would be nailed soon.
The DGP said that police was getting tremendous support from people in every field. “We are investigating the incidents of grenade throwing and killing of an Assistant Sub-inspector (ASI) in jurisdiction of Safakadal police station.”
“Nobody would be allowed to disrupt the booming tourist season and our efforts need full support of people,” he said.
Rajendra said that police was also investigating eight incidents that have taken place in Srinagar during the current year.
Mainstream politicians had strongly condemned the attack on CRPF in Khanyar saying such attacks were aimed at sabotaging the tourism season in the Valley.
Ruling National Conference termed the incident as the handiwork of people who do not want peace and economic prosperity in Kashmir.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that violence has not solved any problem in past nor it will solve in future and termed it an act aimed at disrupting tourism in valley.
