Major challenge before police is to instil sense of security in people: DGP


Director General of Police J&K, Dilbagh Singh on Sunday admitted that there are lacunas in every system including the police as well as other security agencies.

In reply to a media query regarding the “lack of coordination” between the security agencies with reference to Jhajjar Kotli attack, the top cop said, “I don’t want to speak something that will hurt others, but If every system was 100 percent perfect, there would have been no militancy in Kashmir today.”

On the investigation in the Jhajjar-Kotli attack, the DGP said, “It was a big nexus of the militants”.

He added: “As the investigation of the case has been handed over to the NIA, I don’t think it is appropriate to disclose any detail at this point of time. But trust me, once the probe will gradually go into the future stages, many interesting details will come to fore and it will help us investigate some other militancy related cases as well.”

Earlier in the day, the police chief visited the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Hospital, Katra and enquired about the health of the police cops who were injured in the attack. He also rewarded the locals for their “cooperation” during the attack.
