Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Police chief, SP Vaid Thursday batted for a dialogue between all the ‘parties] of Kashmir conflict including ‘Pakistan’.
Director General of Police (DGP) said that people should stay away from encounter sites.
DGP was replying to live question from twitterati on official Jammu and Kashmir police official twitter handle.
DGP was asked about the suggestions he has on resolving Kashmir conflict.
“I wish Kashmir problem was so simple that I could answer in one reply. So many brains have been working for decades to find solution. Not so simplistic problem. I personally feel gun is not the solution, every party including even our neighbor should sit together and talk it out. Violence is not the solution,” DGP replied.
DGP was posed with hard questions on civilian killings.
“No marriage of a terrorist is happening there and bullet has a trajectory. It will hit and will not distinguish between boy, stone pelter, forces,” he said.
DGP blamed civilians for their deaths as “they have no business to be at encounter sites. “Have time and again asked people to stay away from the encounter sites,” DGP said.
The DGP said that the most challenging task has been in 2016 after the killing of former Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
“Post Burhan situation was most challenging task. When charge was given as special DG law and order,” he said.
On presence Islamic State (IS) DGP Vaid said “my only wish is that they don’t come here.”
On Asifa rape and murder case and demand for CBI probe by some DGP Vaid said that police have no problem with CBI handling case but if “Jammu and Kashmir police can deal with terrorists and stone pelters why can’t they deal with this case.”
