Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 17: With the government having announced commencement of the Panchayat polls in the state from November 17, the police are mulling a major crackdown on the Hurriyat leaders and their supporters.
Sources said as a part of the security strategy, a major crackdown is on cards on the Hurriyat leaders and their like-minded by virtue of which many of them will be taken into "preventive custody."
Sources said the Director General of Police Dilbag Singh recently discussed the plan at a high level meeting.
Sources said the Advisor on Home affairs wants Dilbagh to use some new strategies that will make Panchayat polls successful.
Sources said the police are of the opinion that the best would be to detain Hurriayt leaders.
It was reliably learnt that expect for Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, many of the senior separatist leaders including Yasin Malik would be detained.
Sources said the police have intelligence inputs that the separatists have received directives from the Pakistan handlers to leave no stone unturned to sabotage the upcoming local body polls.
Sources said what has raised the morals of the separatists this time is that the regional mainstream parties including National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party have already sided with the separatist ideology.
"When the local mainstream parties are supporting stand of the separatists with regard to boycott the separatists are feeling more of strength so there's a need to cut them to their size," said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said the crackdown was likely to commence from first week of October as around that time the poll campaigning will also be underway.
Sources said the police are of the opinion that crackdown on separatists was one of the measures that can contribute in the smooth conduct of the polls.
"One thing is clear. No boycott campaigns will be allowed anywhere across the state," said an official.
