The Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP) has always been at the receiving- end let it be any encounter, civilian killing or escape of terrorist from their custody. The recent episode of filing an FIR against a serving army officer who was heading a counter insurgency operation talks of its bias. The officer was heading a convey and was not at the spot where the stone-throwing civilians went on rampage trying to assault security men on duty and targeting security forces vehicle. The unruly situation created the much expected situation where any security man will retaliate, since he is on duty and trained to handle the ugly situation. So under such situation policemen accompanying the convey had to come forward and control the unruly mob so that human casualties can be averted. Alas police has been enjoying the situation otherwise the notoriety in filling an FIR directly involving the officer cannot be termed as an accident. This type of incidents are cooked up to keep the ‘India-hatred’ fire burning and these ‘so-called innocent’ youth are the easily available fodder for agencies sitting across the India-Pakistan border and controlling the string of violence in Kashmir. This is a slow bleeding by Pakistan and has been trying all the gimmicks like targeting Parliament, when the session was on, Mumbai attacks where a young Major and in another attack a Lt Col, who was trying to defuse human bomb lost his life, attacks on Dinanagar, Hiranagar Police Station, Samba Army Camp, Pathankot Air Base attack, Uri attack on army unit, anti-tank grenade attack in Poonch used as bunker buster, claimed a young Captain’s life and now the Sunjwan Military Station and the attack on CRPF in the heart of Srinagar city. After all these attacks, police did claim that there were Intel inputs of trouble in some areas but were unable to stop such mishappenings. What use is the Intel input which cannot be used for productive and effective security of the nation? How can we infer such post attack announcements? Is it an exercise to just get Shabashi to top guns? It is not that we are casting aspersions on the overall working of the force, but somewhere lethargy, inefficiency has enmass creeped into the system making it more a dormant force than a pro-active one which is always in the fore front of fight against terrorism.
