PULWAMA — Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Dilbag Singh on Wednesday said infiltration to a large extent has been stopped and almost all cases of target killings have been solved.
The DGP visited District Police Lines Pulwama and inaugurated multiple facilities including a Gym Centre, Conference Hall, Equipment Centre, and a Women’s Police Station.
Among key officers who were also present on the occasion include ADGP Vijay Kumar; Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, Baseer-ul-Haq Choudhary and SSP Pulwama, Ghulam Jeelani among others.
After inaugurating these projects, the DGP said that the Women’s Police Station would prove better for society as most of the domestic cases against women go unreported.
Talking to reporters, the DGP said security arrangements are in place on the border so as to foil any attempt of infiltration very effectively, and to a large extent, infiltration has been checked and some attempts were made but infiltrators were killed.
He also said that almost all cases of target killings have been solved and just one or two cases are pending in which involved persons have been identified and very soon the pending cases will be closed too.
The DGP also said a large number of cases have been registered against drug peddlers and more than 2000 persons have been arrested. He said among them, many were slapped with PSA, and strict action is being taken so as to curb this menace.
He said earlier people were killed with bullets but now people are being killed with drugs here as whosoever uses it once, searches for it again and again. “Attempts are being made to drop drugs through drones, especially in Jammu region, however, every effort is being made to curb this menace,” the DGP said.
Earlier, while talking to reporters in Tral area, he said that he would like to congratulate the people and youth in particular for not opting for the path of ‘terror’ and choosing peace and prosperity.
He said that Tral is almost militancy free now and has become an abode of peace. “Youth must continue this path as those who chose the wrong path never came back,” he said.
