J&K GOVT issues Advisory for Police departments: Details Inside



J&K government directed all Superintendents of Police (SPs) to participate in the meetings chaired by the in-charge Administrative Secretaries during their visits to the respective districts and implement decisions taken there within the fixed timelines.

Directive has been issued to ensure better coordination between the civil and police administration for enforcement of COVID Appropriate Behaviour (CAB).

Similarly, the Deputy Commissioners have been given the discretion to call the Senior Superintendents of Police of the concerned district to the developmental review meetings to take note of issues related to the Police Department. At the Sub Divisional level, the SDM may call the SDPOs during the meetings as per the new directions.

The directions have been issued after it has been observed that the Superintendents of Police in some districts do not attend the meetings being chaired by the Administrative Secretaries.

“As a result of this, certain issues requiring action at their level are not addressed properly. The issue assumes more importance in view of the prevailing situations, requiring proper coordination between the civil and the police administration for enforcement of COVID Appropriate Behaviour within the districts,” Principal Secretary to the Government Manoj Kumar Dwivedi has stated in a circular.

Earlier with a view to ensure better and effective coordination among different departments and monitoring of developmental activities in the districts in a holistic manner, the government on July 7, 2021 had nominated the Administrative Secretaries as in-charge secretaries for the different districts in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pursuant to this, the Administrative Secretaries have been touring the districts assigned to them from time to time.

“These visits have proven beneficial for the overall development in these districts as also better management of COVID-19 related issues. Given the range of issues being reviewed by the touring Administrative Secretaries, it would be appropriate that these meetings are attended by all district or sectoral officers. It has, however, been observed that the Superintendents of Police in some districts do not attend the meetings being chaired by the Administrative Secretaries,” Dwivedi noted.

In this context, Dwivedi directed all Superintendents of Police to ensure their participation in the meetings being chaired by the concerned Administrative Secretaries during their visits to the respective districts and implementation of decisions thereof within the fixed timelines.

“Further the Deputy Commissioners may invite the concerned District Senior Superintendent of Police in the developmental review meetings so that any issue related to the Police Department is taken note of. Similar practices can be followed at sub divisional levels between the SDM and the SDPOs as well as Tehsildars and SHOs,” Dwivedi directed.

Over 300 docs, paramedics test positive in Jammu district





Over 300 doctors and the members of paramedical staff of the Health Department, who comprised the COVID-19 sampling teams in different locations in the Jammu district, have contracted the infection.

Officials said that even as the sampling had been intensified with the deployment of over 53 teams by the Health and Medical Education Department across the district, many of the team members who were involved in collecting samples of the suspected COVID patients from different places, also tested positive.

“Over 300 doctors and paramedical staff members of the health department were found infected with the virus,” said a senior official.

“We are deploying doctors and other medical staff in shifts. After seven days of isolation and medical care, the doctors and other members of the staff are joining duties. After they resume, others infected with the virus proceed on leave for seven days,” he added.

“Somehow, we are managing the sampling which is undergoing in an aggressive manner across Jammu district. We have also deployed six teams for thermal screening of the people at the venue of the main Republic Day function,” the official said.

These teams will remain deployed there till January 29. Besides, the official said, “We have deployed 19 teams at Jammu Airport and 24 teams at Railway Station to sample people on their arrival.” “Around 100-150 samples are collected from Jammu airport and 800 from Jammu railway station as a routine exercise,” the official added.

Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Jammu J P Singh, while speaking to the media, expressed concern over, what he said, “casual approach of the people towards the deadly virus.”

“Despite instructions, they were not reporting to the Chest Disease Hospital at Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Jammu for triage-test,” he said.

“The people with severe illness (comorbidity) and aged having symptoms of COVID19 should come to CD Hospital Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Hospital at Bhagwati Nagar for their medical check-up instead of getting treatment in home isolation,” he said.

He said that the aged and people with comorbidity should approach these hospitals soon after they developed symptoms or they contracted infection so that timely medical care could be provided to them. Another official informed that around 109 infected people were admitted to MCH, DRDO Jammu and GMC Jammu’s COVID care ward. “We have a capacity to admit around 817 infected people in these hospitals and accordingly, the capacity would be increased,” the official said asserting that the majority of the infected people were in home isolation, unlike last year.

Pertinently, the Jammu district has around 59 micro-containment zones while 15 locations were de-notified after the recovery of the infected people.
