In a scathing attack, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh asserted that Pakistan is in no way the friend of people of Jammu and Kashmir as it has continuously brought death and destruction on the people and disrupted the peace and order. During his visit to Kupwar and Handwara district on Tuesday, he emphasized upon officers and jawans to foil the wicked acts and designs of the elements inimical to the peace and prosperity of Jammu and Kashmir.
The DGP said that the proxy war thrust upon India from Pakistan has not come to an end and the police along with other security forces are continuously fighting it and will continue to fight for the security and integrity of our nation. He said that during the previous years particularly in 2010 and 2016 J&K Police faced a tough situation on law and order front.
This time around the force has worked with extreme professionalism in maintaining the law and order in Jammu and Kashmir, the DGP added. He stressed that the subversion and terrorism are to be uprooted so that the general mass can live in a peaceful atmosphere "which is our priority".
While addressing the Darbars, the DGP complimented the officers and Jawans of Police, Army and CAPF for their tireless efforts and dedication in maintaining peace and order in their respective areas. He said that since the last 30 years there were a lot of ups and downs in the security situation but the police personnel along with other security agencies have taken up these challenges bravely and dealt with them firmly.
The DGP said that under the able leadership at different levels from the forces, each one contributed in one way or the other in maintaining normalcy and defeated the ill designs of the anti-national elements. Without caring for their own comfort and celebration of festivals with their families, the Police personnel have remained on the forefront of maintaining peace and public order.
