Form special teams for probing UA(P)A, NDPS Act cases: JK DGP



Director-General of Police Dilbag Singh has called for setting up special teams in all districts of Jammu and Kashmir for investigation of cases of special nature such as those registered under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

The DGP directed police officers to ensure close surveillance on anti-social and anti-national elements and said every step should be taken to neutralize attempts of “anti-peace elements”.

“Special teams under the direct supervision of district Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) should be constituted for investigation of the NDPS, UA(P)A and other cases of special nature,” Singh said on Tuesday at a divisional-level police meeting to analyze the performance of 2021 and prepare the plans and strategies for 2022 for Jammu zone.

He directed the officers to follow the SoPs while investigating the UA(P) A cases and asked the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Jammu to circulate the copies of SoPs to all district SSPs.

While directing for setting the targets for immediate disposal of pending UA(P)A and NDPS cases, the DGP stressed the need for improving the quality and techniques of investigation to ensure the conviction of the guilty.

According to officials, 497 people were booked under UA(P)A cases in Jammu and Kashmir in 2021.

The DGP said more public support should be gained for the prevention of crimes, noting that both modern and traditional policing are equally important in dealing with crimes at different fronts.

He emphasized deputing the officers in the courts which he said would act as a value addition for police in courts.

The DGP directed the officers to launch a special drive in tracking the absconders. He also issued directions to the officials for dealing the crimes of special nature more effectively.

The top official directed the officers to submit their requirements, if any, to the police headquarters so that the security of the national highway is further augmented.

He also stressed the need for making organized plans of accident prevention and accident response on highways.

The DGP directed for deputing the first-aid teams in accident-prone areas. He also directed the officers to take up the work of improving the accommodation and other facilities of jawans and officers on a fast-track basis.

Referring to the crimes against women, the DGP directed for opening up of special women helpdesks in every district so that they would fearlessly report crimes against them and will be able to express their grievances more comfortably.

With regard to community policing, the DGP said that besides conducting police-public meetings, more public-centric initiatives should be taken to further strengthen the police-public bond.

He said law-abiding people should be respected and it should be ensured that they are not put to any inconvenience in any situation.

The DGP directed the officers that every possible help and assistance should be provided to the families of martyrs.

He directed the officers to make it a routine to visit the families of martyrs to express solidarity and know the well-being of these families, adding that the problems faced by these families, if any, should be addressed on priority.


Jammu: Exodus Day Observed as Black Day




Due to the increasing influence of terrorism, the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits started on this day in 1990. Kashmiri Pandits celebrated this day of expulsion as Black Day.

On Wednesday, Kashmiri displaced Pandits protested by taking out a rally in Jagti. These Kashmiri Pandits said that this dark day is remembered by every Kashmiri Pandit who was forced to leave the Valley. It is the job of the Government of India to conduct an inquiry by setting up a commission, and those who had spoiled the situation in Kashmir should be fed the air of jails. Kashmiri Pandits demonstrated fiercely and on the other hand, demanded that the return of Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley be ensured.

For the last 32 years, Kashmiri Pandits have been cut off from their own land. Addressing the occasion, Jagti Tenement Committee President Shadi Lal Pandita said that these Kashmiri Pandits had to leave their homes due to terrorism in the Valley, but today this Kashmiri Pandit wants to connect with their soil and establish three big satellite colonies in Kashmir. If the government does this, then 70 thousand Kashmiri Pandit families will go back to the Valley and join their soil. But now, the central government is not taking any step in this direction. Therefore, Kashmiri Pandits should be told the plan with the central government to return to the Valley.

On the other hand, Raj Kumar Tikku said that January 19 would not be forgotten by Kashmiri Pandits. When the situation in Kashmir turned completely against the Kashmiri Pandits and announcements were made on loudspeakers to leave the Valley. Kashmiri Pandits were forced to migrate for their safety and their families. Many Kashmiri Pandits also lost their lives. The Central Government should now constitute an inquiry committee to bring the real culprits to the jails.

J&K: Terrorist Hideout built in middle of park busted




The remaining terrorists in Kashmir are adopting many unique ways to save themselves from the security forces and the police, but now it is not possible to escape the terrorists from the eyes of the security forces and the police.

The Pulwama and Awantipora police, conducting a joint search operation with the Army’s 55 Rashtriya Rifles and the CRPF, have busted a hiding place built in the middle of a garden in Bandarpora, Awantipora. Terrorists often used to hide in this hideout after committing any incident in the area. At present, with the help of security forces, the police have started a search operation in the surrounding areas, demolishing the hideouts of the terrorists. Other details are awaited.

Now the number of active terrorists in Kashmir has remained negligible. This is why the anger of Pakistan across the border has increased. It is well known that Pakistan encourages terrorists in India. Training camps have also been opened for terrorists across the border in Pakistan. Now that the number of terrorists has been reduced considerably, terrorists are engaged in making targets killed with their weapons to register their presence. However, the security forces and the Jammu and Kashmir Police are fully active in thwarting this nefarious design of the terrorists.

Mystery of Lucknow family allegedly missing in J&K solved




The startling revelation came to light on Wednesday about the Lucknow family allegedly missing during their travel to Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier reports had said that three members of a family from Lucknow — Mehmood Ali Khan, his wife Darakshan and their son, Shavez — had gone missing in Ramban district while they were on their way from Jammu to Srinagar.

Police sources said according to Salim Khan, brother-in-law of Mehmood Ali Khan, all 3 members were murdered by elder son, Sarfaraz Khan on January 5, the day they were leaving towards Jammu by train.

“After disposing of their dead bodies, he meticulously planned to mislead the relatives and police. He clandestinely visited Jammu and Kashmir and messaged via WhatsApp from his father’s mobile phone on 14th January morning in which he posed as his younger brother, Shavez and said that they are stuck on the highway due to landslides.

“He even posted some pictures of the highway,” said the sources.

The details of the case came to light when the J&K police traced the phone in Lucknow that was used to send WhatsApp messages.

Police said Sarfraz had murdered his father, mother and brother in Lucknow itself. On January 6 the body of a youth with a slit throat was found on Lucknow’s Mall Road in the Itaunja area.

Police were unable to identify the body. After this, two more bodies with slit throats were found in the Malihabad area in Lucknow.

After the photographs of the three persons allegedly missing in J&K’s Ramban area were published, police in Lucknow were able to identify all three.

Subsequent investigation revealed that the eldest son of the family, Sarfraz had murdered them. Sarfraz has been taken into custody.

Police said other contacts of Sarfraz are also being questioned. The motive of the gruesome crime is still not known.
