Police caught napping as militants on 'kill and run' in fortified Srinagar

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 13: With the militants having managed to flee from Batamaloo here after a deadly attack on the police party that had launched cordon and search operations in the area, the Jammu and Kashmir Police have again come under scanner for "poor policing."
Sources said New Delhi is keeping close track of developments with regard to militant activities and how police is tackling the situation in Kashmir in general and Srinagar in particular.
The shootout that took place on the morning of August 12, at a stone's throw from the heavily- guarded Civil Secretariat and the Police Control Room Srinagar, has set the alarm bells ringing over allegedly poor policing. One cop was killed and four others wounded in the incident.
The militants had taken shelter in the fortified Batamaloo area from where these two major security installations of vital importance for government could have been the possible targets.
What raises questions over policing is that it's second deadly attack by militants in the area within a month, when the security has been heightened in the run up Independence Day celebrations.
On July 24, militants had managed to kill a paramilitary jawan at a nearby crossing near petrol pump. That day militants had managed to flee from the spot, a few yards away from the offices of Inspector General of Police Kashmir and the Senior Superintendent of Police Srinagar.
With police being unable to nab the assailants, the militants seem to have become more confident and had taken shelter in the same area.
"Such activities in the area, which is supposed to be on the radar of security agencies round the clock is enough to convey that policing is not up to mark," said a retired police official. Prior to this militants managed to carry out a deadly attack on police in Karan Nagar when two cops were killed.
In June, senior journalist Syed Shujaat Bukhari was killed in the heart of Srinagar along with his two PSOs. That time also the militants managed to give a slip.
The summer capital of Srinagar is facing a major challenge with revival of militancy while the police look silent in taking remedial measures.
Sources said most of the police nakas operate till 9:00 PM in the evening only to resume operations in the morning. "What about the possible movement of militants during the late hours or will they move only during daytime when police posts are active?" asked the retired police official.
The concerned police officials couldn't be contacted for comments.
