Jammu and Kashmir police chief Dilbagh Singh has been maintaining after the recent Poonch encounter that attempts were on not only to disrupt the peace in Jammu and Kashmir but also the electoral process going on in different phases for DDC and vacant panch and sarpanch elections.
Now on Monday the Police chief repeated that there are attempts being made from across the border to disrupt peace and also the election process in Kashmir.
He said that the killing of a Personal Security Officer (PSO) of a PDP leader at Natipora, Srinagar, is an attempt to disrupt the ongoing election process and the prevailing peaceful environment across Kashmir.
He said that police have clues about the number of militants involved in the attack and area where they came from and that “attackers will soon be brought to book.”
Talking to the media on the sidelines of the wreath laying ceremony of Manzoor Ahmed at District Police Lines (DPL) Srinagar, he said that one must understand that J&K is going through an important exercise in which people are participating and the ground level politics is going on. PSO Manzoor was guarding PDP senior leader Haji Pervez Ahmed at Natipora, Srinagar, and sustained bullet wounds after militants fired at him at Pervez’s residence early this morning. He was shifted to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
