The Jammu and Kashmir police Saturday held a meeting with the media fraternity of Kishtwar district.

The meeting, chaired by senior superintendent of police, Shakti Kumar Pathak, was held at the SSP’s office. Nasir Ahmed, additional superintendent of police, Kishtwar, Davinder Singh, deputy superintendent of police, Kishtwar, Adil Rishu, deputy superintendent of police, DAR DPL, and Rajinder Singh, sub-divisional police officer, Atholi, were also present on the occasion.

During the interaction, the SSP sought the assistance of the representatives of print and electronic media, in a bid to provide better services to the people and for eradication of crime and social evils.

Besides, the officer also directed the local police to work harder and detect any illegal activity promptly.

A senior journalist, during the meeting, raised an issue about the installation of CCTV cameras at every street of the town. “Businessmen must be directed to install CCTV cameras in the front of their establishments,” he said.

The media persons urged upon the SSP to hold such interactions regularly, in order to better the coordination between the cops and media. They also sought a check on people and websites that are “trying to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere of the town”.
