Hyderabad: Women police personnel can engage with mothers of children in Jammu and Kashmir to prevent the youngsters from taking the “wrong path”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, while lavishing praise on the people of the union territory.

Addressing the 2018 batch of IPS probationers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy here through video conferecing, he also cautioned them not to indulge in wrongdoings and said they would land in troubles with the latest technologies, which are also useful in better policing.

Responding to a woman probationer, Modi heaped praise on the people of Kashmir, saying they are ‘lovely’ people and having special ability to learn new things.

“I am very connected to these people. They treat you with so much love…All of us together, we have to work towards stopping the children from taking a wrong direction.

“And this can be done by our women police officers efficiently. Our women force can effectively work in educating the mothers and bringing back those children. I am confident if you do that, in the initial stage itself we can prevent our children from getting into the wrong path,” Modi said.

He was apparently referring to youngsters taking to militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.
