It will take time to silence the last gun in J&K: DGP


Doors of police not closed for those who committed mistakes in past; police incomplete without public support

Srinagar, Dec 16:  's Director General Police (DGP) RR Swain Saturday said that since guns have a 30 long years of history in the region, it will take time to silence the last gun.

In the sidelines brief after a Public Grievance interaction meet at Srinagar, the DGP said that policing is a very tough job and police are incomplete without public support. “We have to ensure that the genuine party gets justice and for that, we have to listen to both parties carefully while carrying out the investigations,” he said, adding, “it is not like that after proving the theft case, we would let the thief go.”

“To provide better and secure to people it is necessarily important to act tough against elements going against the law. We would work towards zero infiltration, zero arms/ammunition smuggling, zero recruitment, zero narcotics, zero terror financing and most importantly we would work against the narrative, ideology and the philosophy which justifies, glorifies, supports and legitimize terrorism,” stated Director General of Police, J&K, R.R Swain.

He said while treading the tough path, police are fast emerging as the most professional force in J&K. “Even though mistakes do happen. In our journey of policing, we keep on rectifying the mistakes,” the DGP said.

About the stone pelting in Kashmir, the J&K police chief said that it has come to zero. With stone pelting vanishing completely, tourism and trade is flourishing, schools and colleges functioning normally while the income of families has improved and so has their lives.

On policy of the police for the people who have committed mistakes in the past and now living a peaceful life, he said: “Doors of police are not closed for the people who have committed mistakes once or twice in the past but are living normal life. These cases have come to fore during the public darbar including the cases where people have been selected for government but are awaiting security clearance. Passport clearance cases are also before us….”

DGP Swain said that police has adopted two pronged approach for such cases— to look for aggravating factors and mitigating factors—if a person has committed a mistake once and then committed it again, police has to go harsh but under mitigating factors, if a person has committed mistake once and quit it forever, a different approach is adopted. “Our primary aim is to find ways and means to end of violence. Factors responsible for violence have been tackled in a way that they don't exist anymore.”

On Public darbars, he said police family is spread over 1.40 lakh force and cases of different natures come to fore. “Darbars have come from a combination of internal grievance redressal systems given a huge number of family members (policemen). SRO related cases also come to me and then comes to cases related to common people which are also connected with police by one or the other way,” the DGP said.
