Inform us before detaining Kashmiri: J&K Police

J&K Police shot off letters to Anti-Terrorism Squads of various states urging them not to detain any person from the Valley without informing it.

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Police has
shot off letters to Anti-Terrorism Squads of various states
urging them not to detain any person from the Valley without
informing it.

A top J&K Police officer has written to ATS teams of
various states asking them to take the state police into
confidence before detaining any person from the Valley,
according to police sources.
The move comes in the wake of detention of two Kashmiri
men at Alwar in Rajasthan in connection with the Delhi High
Court blast case. The duo were detained as they apparently
resembled the sketches of the suspects in the case.

The sources said the state police wants to avoid the
feeling of unnecessary "harassment" among Kashmiri youths
during their travel to other parts of the country.
Investigations have revealed that the detained duo had no
connections with any terrorist outfit and were not involved in
suspicious activities.
