Will Avenge Every Tear Drop Shed by Families of Militant Victims: Sinha

Jammu- Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Thursday vowed that the security forces will “avenge every drop of tear” shed by the families of those who lost lives in target killings by militants in Kashmir.

He also ordered a probe into the alleged irregularities in JKSSB Sub-Inspector post recruitment process stating that a committee headed by the Home Secretary will investigate the allegations.

“Administration led by me feels the pain and agony of families of those who were killed by militants in Kashmir recently. I assure the families that the security forces will avenge every drop of tear shed by them,” LG Sinha said while addressing police passing out parade at Udhampur, as per news agency KNO.

About the allegations of irregularities into the J&KSSB SI recruitment process, the LG said: “All the recruitment process held so far have been transparent and clean. But fingers have been raised against the J&K SSB list of SI posts. We have decided to constitute a committee that will be headed by Secretary Home to probe the allegations levelled by some people.”

He said that the committee will submit its report within the shortest possible time and if anybody is found involved in playing mischief, strict action will be taken and the entire process will be conducted afresh in a transparent manner.

The LG was addressing the Attestation cum Passing Out Parade of DYSsP (Prob.) 15th Batch and PSIs 25th Batch at SKPA Udhampur.

A total of 30 Deputy Superintendents of Police (Dy.SsP) and 61 Probationary Sub-Inspectors (PSIs), at SKPA Udhampur completed their rigorous training today at the Police Academy.

An oath was administered to the passing out cadets for performing their duties with dedication and honesty.

At the outset, the Lt Governor took the Rashtriya Salute and inspected the Parade, besides taking the salute at an impressive march past by men and women contingents.

Paying his tributes to the brave-hearts of JKP and other security forces personnel who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, the Lt Governor observed that the Jammu and Kashmir Police is a proud force of the country tackling multiple challenges like anti-terror operations, maintaining law & order, dealing with the increasing threats from drones, drug trafficking, cybercrime, and radicalization, every day to maintain peace in Jammu & Kashmir and ensure safe & secure environment for its people.

“Our Police and Security Forces have been successful in dismantling terror modules of the neighboring country. Yet a handful of disgruntled people are radicalizing our youth and are shedding innocent blood by carrying out terror activities in the UT,” he said, adding that they will never succeed in their nefarious designs.

The Lt Governor also handed over awards and certifications to best trainees and outstanding achievers. Parade Commander DySP Vikram Nag led an impressive parade of trainee DYSsP and PSIs.

Meanwhile Sinha said that the militants and their cross-border supporters are using a new method of militancy in the region and declared that the government is committed to destroying their entire ecosystem.

“The terrorists, their supporters and other support setup here are using new methods. They are radicalizing the youths,” Sinha told an outgoing parade of police here. He said that there is a need to be more alert as compared to the past in view of the new strategy and multi-facet terrorism.

The LG asked the police force to treat even those who harbour and support the militants in the category of militant and deal with them accordingly. “The person, who harbours and supports the terrorist, is equally a guilty as a terrorist, who kills. The person who runs this eco-system is equally guilty. Both should be dealt with similar punishment as both are enemies of humanity,” he said.

He also termed the social media as a new challenge to the security establishment in Jammu and Kashmir. “Social media is being used to spread rumours. Cyber crimes, as compared to other crimes, increased by over 11 per cent between 2019 and 2020,” he said.

Sinha said that the social media is being used to create conflict within the society, and called on the forces to prepare for the “fourth generation warfare”.
