He said that the Pakistan is using narco sales for militant funding to create disturbance in Jammu and Kashmir, adding, “J&K Police has been working tirelessly with other security forces and with the support of people, the evil designs would be foiled and the peace process would further be consolidated.”

Singh at the inaugural ceremony of the women police station also said that it is the policy of the Government to provide better and separate legal support to the women.

“Crime against women have been taken seriously and to bring down any type of crime against women, the Women Police Station has been opened where the victims of crime will be dealt with by women officers and officials”, he said.

The DGP added that opening up separate Women Police Stations will provide an opportunity to the women of the respective areas to come forward more freely to report crime as they would be able to express their grievances more comfortably. “Women police stations have been opened at all range levels across Jammu and Kashmir”, the DGP informed.
