The AJKPC President alleged that Several District Police Officers( Districts SP) of Jammu zone have allotted Personal Security officers (PSOs) to the ineligible and insignificant leaders of the political parties and retired officers without even accessing any security threat to them and these people without facing any actual risk are using these PSOs as status symbol.
Sharma claimed that other than twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch most of the districts of Jammu division are peaceful but even there the district Superintends of Police have accorded PSOs to the retired officers and self claimed Netas without following any Standard operating procedure(SoP). Other than retired Officers and Netas, self acclaimed Social activists have also been provided the security cover without any actual risk.
