Top cop pooh-poohs Hizbul muscle flexing

Jammu, Dec 4, 2012, PTI :

Daring Hizb-ul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin to come to Jammu and Kashmir and issue a threat statement here, state Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Prasad on Tuesday said police is perfectly equipped to take care of his threats.

“I say anything he is giving statements--he is little too far from here--He is out of our reach--he should come here and issue statement,” Prasad told reporters here.

“As far as his threats of violence, J&K Police is perfectly equipped to take care of it,” he said.


Prasad was replying to a volley of question about the threat of Syed Salahuddin to trigger violence and target panchayat members in Jammu and Kashmir.

“We have taken care of threats in the past. I think police would be able to maintain level of order. We had been managing it for past 4-5 years now,” he said.

 As per the reports in the section of media in Jammu and Kashmir, Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin had last month said that New Delhi was “exploiting panchs
and sarpanchs to project Kashmir as pro-India” and that they will “continue to be targeted no matter how much government tries to secure them.”
