Raj Bhawan directives on 'security withdrawal' a piece of mind for officials

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 9: With the Raj Bhawan having taken serious note of the withdrawal of security to people who were "facing a threat to life", those in civil and police administration, who had taken things for granted have got a piece of mind.
Since February, some officials in the police and civil administration had been accused of resorting to "favoritism and settling personal scores" by taking away security of many of those had been facing threat to life.
While both the police and civil administration had been silent on the outcry from those facing threat to life, the recent killing of a senior leader of Bharatiya Janta Party in Anantnag, has finally brought in accountability.
Sources said New Delhi had taken serious note of the withdrawal of security to those having threat and that it was conveyed that no such "criminal negligence" would be tolerated in future.
The Governor SP Malik is understood to have pulled up the official machinery on the issue.
Apart from asking the Chief Secretary to go for probe into reasons that led to killing of political persons, the police has been asked to go for separate inquiry.
On May 8, a meeting chaired by the Governor SP Malik in Srinagar asked the police department to probe the killings.
"On the directions of the Governor, the Home Department has ordered that Sh. 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," said an official handout.
Last week, the Raj Bhawan asked the civil administration to probe such killings.
In a handout the Raj Bhavan Spokes-person had stated that Governor, Satya Pal Malik directed "BVR Subrahmanyam, Chief Secretary to get an enquiry conducted into the killings of political people belonging to various political parties in the state in the last few months."
"Governor has asked for identifying any lapses on the part of security agencies regarding ensuring security of political people and has emphasized that from now onwards, all political people should be protected at every cost," the official spokesman had added.
Sources said the two probes have left little scope for any official to resort to "pick and choose" on security issues.
