Maintaining Peace Amidst Challenges

Srinagar: Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh, the top law enforcement official in Jammu and Kashmir, reassured the public on Wednesday that the recent Kokernag encounter had not disrupted the ongoing peace in the region. This statement comes in the wake of the encounter in which militants initiated violence, resulting in the tragic loss of three officers’ lives.

Kokernag Encounter: A Test of Peace

DGP Singh, speaking during the inauguration of a modern police station in Katra, Jammu, emphasized that despite the Kokernag encounter, the overall situation in Kashmir remained peaceful, mirroring its state before the incident occurred. He stated, “The situation remains as peaceful as it was prior to the Kokernag encounter. I am aware that certain parties are attempting to exaggerate the significance of the Kokernag encounter.”

Advantage in Defensive Action

Furthermore, DGP Singh acknowledged the strategic advantage held by those who initiate hostilities. He explained, “When security forces are compelled to fire upon terrorists first, it works to our advantage. In Kokernag, the terrorists were anticipating the arrival of security forces and seized the opportunity to open fire initially, resulting in the deaths of two army officers and one police officer.” He also commended the security forces for successfully executing the operation over seven days, resulting in the elimination of the dreaded LeT terrorist, Uzair Khan, and his associate. He expressed pride in the teams of security forces involved in the operation, given the challenges of locating and confronting concealed terrorists in a vast mountainous terrain.

A Commitment to Public Safety

DGP Singh further underlined the importance of the new police station in Katra, emphasizing its role in enhancing support for Mata Vaishno Devi pilgrims. He noted that the old police station had fallen into disrepair, and the decision to establish a new one was made a few years ago. Today, they are dedicated to providing this improved facility to the public.
