‘It is the Kashmiri who is getting killed’
DGP appeals for end to bloodshed
SRINAGAR, Jun 16: Appealing for an end to the ongoing bloodshed in Kashmir, Director General of Police (DGP)) Dr S P Vaid today it is the Kashmiri who is getting killed-be it a policeman, militant or a civilian.

Talking to media persons here, he said, “This bloodshed must come to an end. At the end of the day it is a Kashmiri who suffers or who is getting killed. Be it a policeman, be it a militant or be it a civilian. This bloodshed will take us to nowhere. It is the murder of humanity.”

DGP said that the escalation in militant attacks on police personnel is because of the “frustration” of the ultras. He said that necessary measures would be taken to prevent them from carrying such acts.

He added that said the militants were targeting the local police as it was fighting them with eagerness.

“The local police works on the anti-militancy front with eagerness, that is why they (militants) are targeting them (police). But I am sure that we will control this soon,” the DGP said.

Earlier, Vaid led civil, police and security forces’ officers and jawans at DPL Srinagar in laying floral wreaths on the mortal remains of the constable Shazad Dilawar Sofi, resident of Ashtengoo village of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district, who was killed in militant firing in Hyderpora area of the city here yesterday.

The DGP termed the constable’s killing as “murder of humanity and Kashmiriyat”.

“This is the murder of humanity and Kashmiriyat, for which our neighbouring country is using our people for its geo-political purposes,” Vaid said.

He said the cop and a youth killed allegedly in security forces’ firing in Rangreth area of city were related to each other.

“They are cousins, belonging to the same family and the same village. That is why I am saying that the people here are being used as pawns,” the DGP said.

Asked about militants warning of attacks on policemen, the top cop said, “We will face that (challenge)”.
