Police collecting info

  • 1

Jammu and Kashmir Police have asked the landlords to provide the details of the tenants putting up in their houses. The practice of seeking details of the tenants was in vogue in nineties when militancy was at its peak.
Now the same trend seems to have returned as Police have once again started collecting the details about the tenants.
Militants reappearing in Srinagar city have put the security agencies on high alert. There are inputs that militants have sneaked into Srinagar city and can strike in a big way in coming days. Encounter at Chattabal in heart of the city in which three militants were killed on Saturday has sent the alarm bells ringing as the Police have claimed that these militants were planning a major strike in the city on the eve of reopening of the offices in Srinagar.
Srinagar city has remained the main focus of the security agencies during the past few years and all the efforts have been put to keep the city militancy free.
During the past few years no major militancy related incidents have taken place in the city and security agencies have been keeping a tight vigil in and around Srinagar.
As the summer season has commenced many people from outside states have started arriving in Kashmir. The Valley is second home for many skilled and unskilled labourers from different states and they are the ones who stay at rented houses across Kashmir.
Spurt in militancy related incidents has put the security agencies on high alert. All the possible efforts are being put to ensure that peace is restored and Srinagar is kept secured. In fact the security agencies have launched a hot pursuit to track and kill the militants and information is being collected from all the corners to ensure that militancy doesn’t resurface at least in Srinagar and the other places. Collecting details of the tenants seems to be one of ways to gather the information about presence of non-locals in the Valley.
