Kulgam: Jammu Kashmir Police Chief Dr Shesh Paul Ved Monday said that bullet proof jackets and vehicles will be made available to policemen very soon.
Ved accompanied by Inspector General of Police Munir Ahmed Khan and other officers interacted with cops at District Police Lines in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
Police Chief assured cops that all their grievances will be addressed at an earliest.
He said bullet proof jackets will be provided to the policemen. “Bullet proof vehicles will also be at the disposal of cops shortly,” he added.
DGP thanked policemen for “restoring peace” in Pulwama, Kulgam and Shopian, the three districts that witnessed large scale violence in 2016 uprising.
Shortly after the culmination of interactive session, Ved while talking to reporters reiterated that they will treat those militants with “respect and love” who will return to the “mainstream”.
“The militants are our own children. I request their mothers to persuade them to return to the families. Few days back, we treated an injured militant with affection and we want these militants should shun the path of violence,” Director General of police said. (CNS)
