Financial Commissioner (Additional Chief Secretary) Home Department J&K, R K Goyal along with Director General of Police (DGP) J&K Dilbag Singh presided over ‘Thana Diwas’ function organized at Zainapora Police Station in District Shopian.
In his address, R K Goyal said that ‘Thana Diwas’ is an initiative taken under the directions of Lt Governor of J&K Manoj Sinha to extend Police services to the people of J&K. Thana Diwas is a medium to come more close to the general people, he said, adding, since its launch it has been organized in all the districts of UT continuously this year.
He said that Nasha Mukti Abhiyan is going on to eradicate the drug menace as well to aware people especially youth against the ill effects of drugs. “We have to take action against all those involved in drug peddling and its trade,” he added. On the occasion, Goyal listened the issues raised by the people and assured to look into them.
Speaking on the occasion, the DGP said some elements are disturbed by witnessing growing peace in J&K and are making attempts to disturb it. He said besides J&K Police, and other security forces, it’s the responsibility of the people to consolidate this peace further. He said that across the border terrorist training camps/ launch pads are still active. Infiltration attempts were made from LoC and IB, J&K Police and security forces have tracked down many of these infiltrators, he added.
He said that during the current year, around three dozen Pakistani terrorists affiliated with JeM & LeT were neutralized which indicated involvement of Pakistan and its agencies in fomenting trouble in J&K. The top cop said that Police, security forces and the people of J&K would continue to work together to foil their evil intentions and further strengthen the peace. I think before winter sets in some more infiltration bids would be attempted, he said.
The DGP said that Pakistan has been sending weapons to drag our youth on the path of destruction. He said with intensified efforts and strong response of J&K Police and CAPFs coupled with rejection by the youth, it is now pushing drugs to harm our younger generation. The state police chief said that we have to stand and work mutually to stop this trend too for better tomorrow.
