Inspector General of Police, Kashmir, Vijay Kumar Monday sought intervention of civil society in preventing "misuse of Masjids".

In a tweet on Monday, IGP Kumar said: "Militants misused mosques for militant attacks in Pampore on June 19, 2020, Sopore on July 1, 2020, and Shopian on April 9, 2021. Public, Masjid Intizamia, civil societies, and media should condemn such acts."
