SRINAGAR: Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, SP Vaid on Thursday blamed civilians for their deaths. He said that they (civilians) have no business to be at encounter sites.
DGP was replying to live question from people on official Jammu and Kashmir police twitter handle. DGP was posed with hard questions on civilian killings.
“No marriage of a terrorist is happening there and the bullet has a trajectory. It will hit and will not distinguish between a boy, stone pelter, forces,” he said.
“Have time and again asked people to stay away from the encounter sites,” DGP said. Director General of Police (DGP) said that people should stay away from encounter sites.
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 a solution. Not so simplistic problem. I personally feel the gun is not the solution, every party including even our neighbour should sit together and talk it out. Violence is not the solution,” DGP replied.
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.”
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 the most challenging task. When the 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.” (PTK)
