People behaved maturely post Article 370 roll back, no major crowd at encounter sites: DGP Dilbagh Singh

‘Burial management of militants also proving a success’

Srinagar, June 11: Jammu and Kashmir union territory police chief Dilbagh Singh Thursday said that there was no major law and order situation as people behaved in a very “matured manner post abrogation of Article 370”.
He also said that “top commanders of various militant outfits were killed post August 5 last year”.
According to news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS), DGP Singh said that “Credit for change in the situation goes to the people of Kashmir largely and then to the security forces, who ensured no harassment to the general masses and instead behaved with the people in a very compassionate manner. “This has worked well,” he said.
He said the change in people’s behavior has been witnessed since the past over a year. “Law and order situation is being dealt with effectively. We have reached out to the masses telling them that getting out of their homes and protests and stone pelting put their lives on the line and there is now Covid threat also and if they gather in large numbers at encounter sites that can be a health hazard for them. So far people have been cooperating with us,” the DGP said, adding that burial of local militants was also an issue where militants and militancy was being eulogized and “now with our burial management policy that issue is also over now.”
He, however, said that there were law and order situations during the encounters where Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Commander Reyaz Naikoo and Lashkar-e-Toiba top commander Burhan Koka were killed as their supporters came out and started pelting stones at the forces. “But law and order was dealt effectively by the law and order component of security forces,” he said.
He said that from the last one and half years the law the order situation in the UT has been very effectively handled.
“For the improvement in the situation the largest part of the credit goes to people as they were and are very cooperative and also the credit goes to security forces for their best approach towards the people on ground,” he maintained.
He added that after Abrogation of Article 370, there has been no harassment, no embarrassment to the people. “People have now faith on the security forces Ever since the abrogation of Article 370, forces conduct towards the people was good and the important part is that people have also cooperated and responded in a very positive manner, and that kind of response continues,” the DGP told national channel.
He said that the security forces had a large number of successful operations during the last four months.
“We have been able to eliminate 70 plus militants so far which includes commanders of various outfits,” he added. (KINS)
