Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh Thursday while reacting to the killing of two teachers in Srinagar has said that such shocking attacks on innocent civilians belonging to minority communities is an attack on the communal harmony which has been prevailing in Kashmir for centuries.
He said that police and other wings of the security were alert and are ready to face the situation on the ground and said that such killings cannot break the bond between the communities in Kashmir valley and these innocent killings are unfortunate and condemnable.
According to KNO while reporting the utterances of top cop it has said in its new report on Thursday as follows.
Talking to reporters outside the Government Boys Higher Secondary School Sangam, Eidgah, Srinagar, the DGP said that killing of innocent civilians reflects “frustration and barbarism.”
“This is an attempt to defame local Muslims of Kashmir. Killing innocent civilians including teachers is a move to attack and damage the age-old tradition of communal harmony and brotherhood in Kashmir,” the J&K Police chief said as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO). He said killing innocents is a conspiracy to “target local ethos and values” which will be defeated by the police and people collectively.
He said that police have got some clues and leads about the killers in previous cases and that the fresh case will be probed too. “I talked to staff members of the school and they are in total shock over losing two colleagues. Police will nab the killers very soon,” he said.
