Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 8: Governor Satya Pal Malik today directed the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Law & Order Muneer Ahmad Khan to conduct an inquiry into all these incidents and submit recommendations to stop such killings within 15 days.
Meanwhile, the Governor has said that security cover and safe accommodation will be provided to elected Sarpanches, Municipal Councillors and Mayors/ Presidents of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in case of any threat perception.
The Governor Administration came under severe criticism after it withdrew security cover from several dozen political workers and leaders in the valley. Two former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, besides other politicians, have criticized the decision and warned against the withdrawal of security of political leaders and activities.
BJP on Tuesday held a protest in the summer capital, Srinagar, against Governor Administration's decision to withdraw security cover of political workers in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP State General Secretary Ashok Kaul surrendered his security as a mark of protest against the decision of the administration.
An official spokesperson said that the Governor undertook a detailed review of the security management related issues in a high level meeting at the Raj Bhavan here today. "The Governor was given a sector-wise assessment of the prevailing security situation in the State," he said.
Expressing concern over the killings of political functionaries belonging to various political parties in the State in last few months, the Governor stressed the need for ensuring safety of protected persons and advised security agencies to give due consideration to the genuine apprehensions of political activists working at the grass root level.
The Governor reiterated the need to constantly maintain a close watch on the ground situation and underlined the importance of sustained efforts to bring peace and harmony in the society for the overall benefit of people.
On the directions of the Governor, the Home Department has ordered that Muneer Ahmad Khan, ADGP, Security/L&O shall conduct an enquiry into all such attacks that have taken place since October, 2018.
"This is with a view to ensuring that all possible measures, general as well as specific, are taken for security of political workers to enable them to continue their political activities, particularly in view of the terrorist attacks on political workers in recent past. He shall submit his report, covering all the relevant aspects, alongwith appropriate recommendations within 15 days," the spokesperson said.
Keeping in view the threats issued by militant organisations during the elections to Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and Panchayats and the heightened risk faced by elected Sarpanches, Municipal Councillors and Mayors/ Presidents, it was decided that in case any of them require safe accommodation, they will be provided a secure room for their stay either at the State or District level.
This will come into effect immediately and the Divisional Commissioners and IGs will operationalize this after contacting the Sarpanches and ULB members.
Further, the Governor stated that leaders of different political parties and other organizations may raise their security concerns with the security headquarters of J&K Police and the due diligence of threat perception will be carried out by the Intelligence agencies before arriving at a decision on the provision of personal Security to persons with a perceived threat.
The Governor also said that he would be inviting the leaders of different political parties to discuss their security concerns and how to address them so as to create a secure political and governance environment for one and all.
Scores of BJP leaders and workers led by Kaul assembled at Press Enclave in Srinagar on Tuesday demanding reinstatement of security to political workers in the state.
The protest came against the backdrop of killing of a BJP leader by unidentified gunman in south Kashmir district of Anantnag on May 4. Gul Mohammad Mir was fired upon by gunmen at Nowgam Verinag in Anantnag.
