Jammu: While there was incident free R-day across the state, people in Jammu expressed displeasure over the way police conducted searches and frisking of civilians across the city.
Many people while appreciating police for making the R-day free of any untoward incident said the police’s lack of professionalism was quite evident during days preceding January 26. The city was turned into a fortress ahead of the R-day.
“Jammu police misbehaved with common people in the name of security while conducting searches,” said a local of Panjthiriti.
“Panjthiriti is an entry point of the city and highly sensitive in view of the security threat especially during R-Day, but such lack of professionalism is deplorable,” he added.
