Early Times Report
Srinagar, Aug 18: The police in Kashmir have issued a security-related advisory to cops ahead of the festival of Eidul Azha.
The Eidul Azha will be celebrated Wednesday, August 22.
Sources told Early Times that the security personnel going home on this festival have been asked to remain careful and avoid Eid prayers in isolated places. "Of late, cops and other security personnel visiting their native villages on leave have been easy picking for militants. So we found it necessary that the advisory in this regard to be issued," said a top police official.
"You are advised to instruct the field and subordinate formations that they shall remain careful at their home and should avoid offer Eid prayers in isolated places," sources quoting the advisory told Early Times.
In Apri last year, the police had also advised its personnel to avoid visiting their homes for an unspecified period of time. The Valley has witnessed an increase in attacks on policemen in last two years.
According to sources, the advisory is a "preventive measure" to ensure the safety of security forces who have been the target of militants.
It is to mention here that last month the bullet-riddled body of a Jammu and Kashmir police constable who was abducted from his home in Kulgam district was found at Qaimoh.
An army solider from Rajouri, Aurangzeb, was abducted when he was on his way to his home to celebrate Eid.
The body of another police constable identified as Javaid Dar was found by locals at Pariwan village in Kulgam, a day after he was abducted from a medical shop in Shopian on July 16.
In May last year, gunmen abducted and shot dead a 23-year old Kashmiri army officer, Ummer Fayaz Parray, 4 kms away from the house of his maternal uncle at Heman village in Shopian district where he had come to attend a wedding ceremony.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir government has taken all necessary and special security measures to keep the law and order and traffic situations under control to ensure the people a safe and happy Eid-ul-Azha.
Sources said that police officials across the state especially in the Muslim majority areas have also been given strict instructions to take all necessary measures to ensure adequate security for Eid congregations and prayers, and stop any possible militant threat at any cost.
"We have spoken to the higher-ups in the districts to make sure that security is beefed up during the Eid celebrations." said one of the top officials.
However the official said that there were no specific or active militant threats at the moment but yes forces have been asked to closely monitor the situation.
"The DCs and SSPs have been directed to monitor the situation very closely to avoid law and order problem in the valley," a senior official said.
Sources said it has also been decided to make additional deployment of security personnel in sensitive places on the Eid day and before it. This is being done to avoid recurrence and to keep proper vigil on the situation.
Police said they are committed to ensure "peaceful" Eid. "We don't want law and order problem should emerge on the Eid. We are fully prepared to ensure that no untoward incident happens on Eid and want safety and security of the people. People should celebrate this festival without any problem," the official said.
Sources said that the activities of all those youth who had been arrested and later released on the charges of stone pelting in the past are being properly monitored.
Meanwhile, sources said that it is unlikely that the government will release the jailed separatist leaders before the Eid.
