JK Police to get over 150 bulletproof gypsies

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Police is all set to include over 150 bulletproof gypsies in its fleet, a step taken after increasing militant attacks on security forces, a police official said today.

In this regard, the police had floated a notice last week inviting tender for fabrication of the vehicles into bullet resistant vehicles (BRVs) to arm officers, cops and moving patrol teams against the militant attacks.

The Centre government has already announced Rs 500 crores for the modernization of J&K Police under Prime Minister Development Programme.

“J&K government hereby invited reputed and registered manufacturers of fabrication of bullet resistant vehicles to unarmour 154 gypsies with protection against 7.62mmX39mm (AK-47) without run flat system”, Assistant Inspector General (AIG) Provisions, Mubassir Latifi, said.
