Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir's Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda on Tuesday asked officers of his force to curb with an iron hand the miscreants bent upon disrupting peace and tranquility.

"People of the state cannot be left at the mercy of the miscreants who are adamant to disrupt peace and tranquility in the state", Khoda said speaking at a meeting of police officers of South Kashmir at District Police Lines, Anantnag, 55km from here.

Khoda also asked the officers to keep vigil on the activities of rumor mongers and curb their activities.

The DGP said Jammu and Kashmir police had faced the abnormal situations for the last 20 years and the force has dealt with these situations with courage and fortitude.

He asked the officers to maintain close co-ordination within their ranks and other security forces to achieve better results in defusing tension in their respective jurisdictions.

Stressing the need for greater synergy between the police and security forces, Khoda said this could be done by having regular meetings at various levels.

He asked the officers to interact with the senior citizens in their respective areas which could help in dealing the situation in a better way.

The DGP said senior police officers at district level should be kept apprised about the day-to-day situations so that necessary guidance and feedback is provided to respond to any emerging situation. He also called for proper deployment of manpower in the required areas.
