Separatist leaders free to perform religious, peaceful activities: DGP

Director General of Police Dr S. P Vaid said that the situation is better in Kashmir than last year as the level of violence adding separatists’ leaders were free to carry out their religious and peaceful activities.
“There are no restrictions on our side in their religious activities. They can offer prayers whenever they want. We won’t restrict peaceful activities of the separatists. But when we have apprehension of violence, we put restriction for safety and security of people in the larger interest,” Vaid said.
The DGP, said the infiltration attempts have doubled than last year.
“This year the infiltration attempts have doubled than last year. Infact more than 250 attempts occurred at the border but BSF and army foiled a lot of attempts. As per some reports, 75-80 militants have infiltrated including some foreign elements of JeM (Jaish-e-Muhammad). And these are the attempts from across to sent suicidal squads JeM to boost sagging morale of militants which is down due to the continuous efforts and success of security forces to eliminate militants,” Vaid said.
He said that the local recruitment of youth as militants is decreasing because the main militant leaders of the organisation who recruited these youth were neutralised.
He said that the police wants to make drug-free, gun-free and violence-free Kashmir. “Kashmir needs freedom from these three things, and for that I will request Pakistan to spare us from these three dangerous things because these things are imported like virus from Pakistan,” he said.
The DGP said that he disagrees with the statements that give complete credit to NIA for improving the situation in the valley.
“NIA raids complemented improvement of the situation here. But NIA raids are not everything. JK police and security forces created conducive situation here and then NIA could carry out their raids. I don’t think such raids would have been possible last year (in 2016),” he said. (KNS)
