Guv for ‘reasonable restrictions’ to minimise civilian casualties during encounters

SRINAGAR: Governor N N Vohra on Wednesday asked the army’s northern commander, Lt Gen D S Hooda, to ensure “reasonable restrictions” during encounters to minimise civilian casualties.
Hooda called upon Vohra at the Raj Bhawan, Jammu, an official handout issued here.
“The governor discussed with Hooda important issues related to the procedures to be followed before and post-operations against militants and the strict enforcement of reasonable restrictions to minimise inconvenience to the people at large…resulting in causing injuries or resulting in any unfortunate killing of innocent civilians,” the handout said.
It said the governor and the army commander also discussed various issues related to security management along the International Border, Line of Control, Line of Actual Control, and counter-insurgency operations in the hinterland.
