Lethpora (Pulwama): Out-going Director General of Police (DGP), Dilbag Singh on Saturday presented the report-card of last five years, stating that there have been no civilian deaths or collateral damage during this period while the graph of terrorism is also coming down drastically.

Addressing the passing-out parade of 307 officials at CTC Lethpora, Pampore in Pulwama district, the DGP said that “zero” word has been most popular in J&K since the past five years. “The five-year report card of J&K suggests that there has been zero collateral damage, zero law and order incidents and zero civilian causality. The graph of terrorism that brought a bad name to J&K is also coming down to zero,” the outgoing police chief said.

He said that three terror incidents were reported in Anantnag district while 36 police stations “showed a 100 percent terror-free record”.

He also said that this year, ‘Operation Capacity Building’ was launched to lace the 43 police stations with the latest weaponry and anti-terror teams. 

“In the first phase, we covered 21 police stations and today teams have been launched for the remaining 22 police stations. These police stations are being covered under zero terror plan,” DGP Singh said as per news agency KNO. 

“The police stations covered under Operation Capacity Building will have drone availability, latest weaponry and 14-member squad each for tackling terror incidents,” he said, adding that with the help of these new teams, area domination will get further strengthened.

The J&K police chief said that the killing of five terrorists in Machil, Kupwara shows that the enemy continues to disrupt the peace in J&K. “Our border grid is so strong and we will ensure all infiltration bids are foiled on the LoC,” he said.

The DGP said that all the achievements of police would not have been possible without the public support. “J&K police is the people’s police, working for the safety of youth, people and the children who leave their homes for school for a better future. We urge people to continue their support to the police for better tomorrow,” the DGP said. (With inputs from KNO)
