Illegal barricades make high-security Karan Nagar insecure, police silent

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Aug 9: Even as police claim to have heightened security across Srinagar in the wake of recent rise in militant attacks, the high-security Karan Nagar locality that houses several camps of paramilitary forces has become "more insecure."
Officials said in brazen violation of norms some persons have illegally erected concrete barricades to prevent movement of four-wheelers in the locality that houses numerous paramilitary CRPF camps.
Sources said even though CRPF had cautioned the police about the security threat due to the illegal barricades, "the concerned have been ignoring the issue for months."
Some of the key roads including the ones connecting to the SMHS Hospital have been illegally blocked for vehicular traffic except for two-wheelers, near the CPRF camps.
The administration has been silent when only a few months ago, a deadly fidayee attack took place at a nearby CRPF camp in the area.
Officials confirmed that the concerned departments including Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Road and Building Department and the Traffic Police had been silent on the construction of illegal barricades due to "political pressures."
But sources said now paramilitary forces camping in the area apprehend that the militants could take advantage of the barricades to carry out attack in the sensitive area.
"There are inputs that such barricades can prove disastrous because in most of the terror strikes terrorists managed to flee on two wheelers and even if one tries to chase them in armored vehicles they can manage easy escape due to these illegal blockades in the form of barricades, which unnecessarily disrupt traffic movement" said a paramilitary CRPF official on the condition of anonymity.
A police official admitted that the barricades could prove disastrous and facilitate militant attack. "But removing illegal barricades is not out job. We had asked the SMC to act but we do not know why no action was taken," the police official added on the condition of anonymity.
The SMC officials didn't respond to phone calls.
Pertinently Karan Nagar has been target of several militant attacks. In the last around a year, atleast four cops and a CRPF jawan have were killed in the area in separate attacks.
Pakistani terrorist Naveed Jatt had also escaped from Karan Nagar locality last year.
