Policing in JK involves unique challenges: CM


Gives sermon for tolerance and compassion

Udhampur, Oct 28 (KNS): Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti Friday, said the policing in & involves many challenges as, more than just law and order, the police force has to deal with extraordinary situations in J&K unlike other states of the country.

“I must admit that our police force works in very peculiar and difficult circutances unlike their counterparts in other states,” the Chief Minister said while addressing the cadets at the Attestation-cum-Passing out Parade of 17 Probationer Dy SPs and 106 Prosecuting Officers at the Sher-e-Kashmir Police Academy (SKPA), here.

The Chief Minister also inspected the parade and took salute at the March Past. She also gave away prizes to the best adjudged trainee officers. Among the Probationer Dy SPs, Dr Sunniya Wani was adjudged as All Round Best Cadet and was awarded the Sword of Honour and CM's certificate of appreciation. Akash Kohli won the best rider, Sahil Mahajan the best sportsman, Sharad best marksman, Sheikh Adil Mushtaq was adjudged first in outdoor while as, Sakib Gani as first in indoor activities. He also won second all round best cadet award. Among the prosecuting officers Bazila Bashir was given all round best Cadet award and best in indoor activities. While as, Sidharth Thakur was adjudged best in outdoor activities.

Putting emphasis on better policing, Chief Minister told the cadets that it is not only policing that they shall need to carry out, but also parenting, especially to the misadvised youth who present a bigger challenge. “Your challenge is the 10 year old boy on the street with whom you need to deal with more compassion and as a younger sibling”, she said. She emphasized that since common people in the state have realized the futility of the gun resulting in waning of militancy over years, “forces averse to peace are now instigating youngsters to violence with stones.”

Mehbooba said that war is no solution to the problem and that Pakistan should initiate dialogue for peace. “Jung kisi masley ka hal nahin hai, ultimately humein dosti kar leni chahiye (War is no solution, ultimately we have to form a friendly relationship). Pakistan should initiate dialogue instead of indulging in cross border firing,” she said. “ and Pakistan need to sit together like civilised nations and talk, and I think there is a need for Pakistan to take the initiative,” she added.

Referring to the recent turmoil in the Kashmir valley and particularly its impact on the sector, the Chief Minister said that certain people have utilized school going children for their vested interests by keeping them away from schools. Expressing pain and anguish on the recent reports of schools being gutted down, the Chief Minister made a pointed reference to the ones instigating poor children and misguiding them to violence with the aim that any reaction, if, leading to injuries or fatalities would become a feeder to prolong the turmoil, which has over a period of time only brought miseries to the people. She added that students are keen to attend schools but fear intimidation by miscreants.

The Chief Minister said that there has to be no room for corruption and absolute transparency shall also have be maintained in the recruitment process at all levels. She also enumerated various steps being taken and proposal being considered for the welfare of police force.

Making his remarks the Director General of Police K Rajendra congratulated the officers and wished all the best for their better future in the police force. He impressed upon them to work with honesty and dedication to come up to the expectations of people and the police organization.
