Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 9: In an attempt to take credit, the Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu police bypassed a premier intelligence agency that had shared information about possession of illegal weapons by two criminals, with the result the duo fled from the spot with the arms.
If sources are to be believed, the top intelligence agency had shared information with the SOG Jammu about possession of illegal weapons by two history sheeters in Simbal area. The SOG laid a trap to arrest the duo.
"By dodging the premier intelligence agency knowing well that the agency has already laid a trap for the arrest of said history sheeters, the SOG cops raided the place without taking the agency into confidence. With the result the said history sheeters managed to escape from the spot and SOG failed to recover the illegal weapons," said police sources.
They said the agency had laid a trap for the arrest of the two history sheeters and recovery of illegal weapons from them, but the SOG team without taking the agency into confidence raided a house where they were present, and as soon as SOG raided the house, the two criminals managed to escape with weapons.
"The raid in a hush-hush manner by SOG failed to catch the history sheeters and the illegal weapons", said sources, adding that the SOG Jammu, just to take credit, missed the recovery of illegal weapons.
According to sources, the recovery of weapons from the history sheeters could have led to busting of racket of illegal fire arms in the state as over smartness of SOG led to lose the catch of the history sheeters and arms.
Sources further disclosed that this is not the first incident of its kind. In the past there were many incidents when even one wing of the police department was bypassed by the other wing just to take credit. "This bypassing tactic is proving a blessing for anti-social elements," the sources added.
