Srinagar: Scores of SPOs working in Jammu and Kashmir Police Department Monday alleged that despite being promoted as Constables a decade ago their salary was not enhanced. They said soon after getting promotions, they started drawing Rs 16,000 per month, however, after sometime police department through a circular curtailed our salary and directed the concerned authority to release only Rs 3800 per month.
