Police issues advisory to prevent weapon snatching

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Jan 18: To prevent weapon snatching by militants, Jammu and Kashmir police have come up with an advisory asking the policemen and protected persons to strictly adhere to the new guidelines.
The security advisory, copy of which has been sent to all protected persons, warns that even a small violation can land a policeman in big trouble if he violates it. The advisory lays special emphasis on avoiding abandoning a weapon and makes it obligatory for protected persons like politicians to inform the district police control rooms when intending to travel.
A senior police officer privy to the developments said that travel of protected politicians depends on the category. "As per the advisory, if a politician intends to travel outside the state, they are supposed to seek prior permission from the concerned police control rooms," he said.
"If the weapons of police guards are found abandoned, they will [be] seized. The erring policemen will be punished for dereliction of duty," the officer said and added the directions have been given to the district SPs that there must be surprise checking of the houses of protected persons to check whether the guards are alert or not.
He said apart from the reason that there is a shortage of weapons in militant outfits such incidents (weapon snatching) are also planned with a view embarrassing the security grid.
Two major weapon snatching incidents in the last three months shook the entire security grid. The first occurred on September 28 at J-11 government quarters at Jawahar Nagar where police guard of former PDP legislator Aijaz Mir fled with seven rifles and a licensed pistol of Mir. On December 30, four more weapons were looted from the house of a Congress legislator in the same area. In both cases, 11 policemen were suspended from service for dereliction of duty.
Though isolated incidents of weapon snatching were happening in the Valley since the beginning of 2015, it saw a spurt after the unrest broke out in the wake of killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani on 8 July 2016.
During 2018, around 74 weapons were looted across Kashmir valley.
