Srinagar: Director General of Police Dilbag Singh on Monday said security forces want to avoid Kulgam like incidents where seven civilians died in a blast after an encounter with terrorists had concluded.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the wreath laying ceremony of a Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jawan who was killed in a terrorist attack in Tral on Sunday, the Director General of Police (DGP) urged people to stay away from sites of anti-terrorism operations.
It was an unfortunate incident and we regret it. When an operation is concluded, there are apprehensions of unexploded explosives at the site and people, especially youth, should avoid going to such places or to touch the debris. We have been asking people to avoid such sites, he said. Singh stressed that security forces want to avoid collateral damage during the anti-terrorism operations but people should also avoid creating such situations which may put them in harm’s way.
We express solidarity with the families of the slain persons. We do not want such incidents,” he said.
“We have directed all the forces to make sure there is no collateral damage in the operations (against terrorists) but people should also understand that they should not create such a situation which can lead to the loss of innocent lives, the DGP added.
Meanwhile, a police officer said that a fake Twitter handle of the Jammu and Kashmir Police was being shared on the Internet and a warning of legal action was issued in this connection.
“An image of a fake Twitter account with an update of our official Twitter account is being shared on the Internet. We request the public not to share it,” the officer said.
“We have taken cognisance of this criminal activity and necessary legal action is being initiated,” he added.
The officer clarified that the official Twitter handle of the Jammu and Kashmir Police was @JmuKmrpolice.
“We request the people on social media networks to follow it for official and authentic updates regarding the Jammu and Kashmir police,” he said.
