“You are talking about incidents of long ago. The officers concerned at that time must have looked into it. But there is no bar on investigating if something comes to the fore formally,” he said. Asked if the arrested DSP had named other policemen who were in league with him, the DGP said the investigation into the case was going on and it was not proper for him to comment. “There might be more disclosures in the coming times we will share with you but for the time being, we cannot comment on it,” he added.
DGP Singh supported the idea of setting up deradicalisation centres for youth, who have gone astray, in the trouble torn union territory.
“In recent times, there have been lot of efforts from Pakistan and it’s agencies to spur radicalisation in this area, some of our young minds have been affected by it and have gone astray. If such a facility (deradicalisation centre) comes up, it should be welcomed,” DGP Singh told reporters here.
He said some of the youth, who have been caught by police, did not seem to talk sense sometimes.
“At our end, when we have got hold of such youth, they don’t seem to talk much sense at times,” he said.
Singh said if an attempt is made to set up a facility where experts in the subject and religious experts are part of it, it will help these youth.
“It will be a good development and it should be welcome,” the DGP said.
