Srinagar, October 30: Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh warned Monday that authorities in the region must stay vigilant in the face of persistent threats.

On Sunday, a police officer was attacked in the Eidgah neighbourhood of Srinagar, and he was alluding to that incident. Yesterday, while playing cricket with other authorities, one of our policemen was assaulted. According to the Kashmir News Observer (KNO), DGP Singh informed the media at Zewan that the injured officer is receiving treatment and is on the mend after launching 160 high-tech vehicles for 43 police stations as part of Operation Capacity Building (Op CAP).


The DGP warned that law enforcement officials must be vigilant. There are still dangers out there, he said, so we must be careful. The outgoing DGP was asked to leave a note for the police department, to which he responded, “I am not leaving the force.” A cop never changes into anything else. I’ve been a cop for 30 years and want to keep going for a long time to come. When DGP Singh retires on October 31, special DG CID RR Swain will take over as the state’s top cop in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said today that 160 brand new cars have been released and will be used by the 43 police stations participating in OP CAP to achieve the goal of “zero terror in the area falling under police station.”

The DGP recently commented on recent infiltration attempts, saying that despite the robustness of the border grid, terrorists are still being pushed in from adjoining countries. “Recently, five terrorists were killed in Machil Sector, and one terrorist was killed in today’s encounter in Kupwara district, where operations are ongoing,” he added.

When asked about a reported breach of the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Arnia region, he indicated that the circumstances surrounding the event were still being investigated. He expressed his optimism that the truce would last, saying, “The ceasefire has brought much relief to the border residents.” Because the bordering nation was holding elections, he responded to the question by saying, “Police and security agencies will keep a close watch on the developments and take measures to deal with any additional challenges.” He said that the elections in the adjoining nation had not stopped the flow of terrorists over the border. “Security forces are always ready to deal with any eventuality,” the DGP remarked.
