Srinagar, Sep 22: Appreciating the officers and Jawans of police and other security agencies for successfully accomplishing encounters and killing militants, Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh on Tuesday asked them to be more watchful and alert to foil any plan by Pakistan to stir and step up violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
A police spokesman said Singh visited Police Component Srinagar where he interacted with the jawans and held officers meeting.
He distributed the cash rewards and certificates of appreciation for commendable work done by the officers and personnel of the component.
The DGP was accompanied by Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir range Vijay Kumar and other officers.
Speaking to the officers in the meeting, the DGP appreciated the commendable work done by the officers and jawans of Police Component Srinagar in handling difficult situations along with other security forces during the recent operations at Panth Chowk and at Batmaloo in Srinagar.
He appreciated the officers and Jawans for successfully accomplishing encounters and neutralising militants while taking due precautions.
The DGP said that it was very unfortunate that during the Batmaloo encounter, a civilian woman died. He said that in most of the operations, Police and security forces are displaying their discipline and professionalism in handling such situations.
The DGP said that Jammu and Kashmir Police efforts can be judged by the fact that the families were called to persuade the militants to surrender during the encounter at Pantha Chowk. He said despite the death of one of our finest officers in that encounter our personnel gave a chance to a militant to surrender.
He stressed upon the officers to be more watchful and alert as the militants and their handlers in Pakistan have plans to stir and step up violence in Jammu & Kashmir to take out their desperation to recent losses to militant cadres.
While interacting with the jawans the DGP complimented their bravery and valour. He advised them to take care of their health and fitness. He also interacted with the personnel of different sections of the component and appreciated their efforts and support provided to the personnel on ground.
