Mumbai: After Deputy SP Davinder Singh was arrested with two Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists, Shiv Sena on Saturday questioned the role of police in the Kashmir Valley.
“Cross-border infiltration continues in Kashmir. But the police system is being used to help militants in Kashmir to cross the border (to go to Pakistan) and to do so, a President’s Medal awarded Deputy SP Was arrested. It seems to have been done in Kashmir. The government is using the police for some other purposes, what would the country’s home ministry say if anyone has doubts regarding the Pulwama attacks, Sena mouthpiece, Saamna, read.
This was in the context of the incident in which Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday intercepted a vehicle and arrested DySP Davinder Singh along with two top Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists travelling together.
The Shiv Sena mouthpiece said that the centre’s influence and acceptance of the removal of Article 370 should be reflected “through the people” during the upcoming Republic Day celebrations.
“Jammu and Kashmir is now a Union Territory. It is being governed by the Center through President’s rule. The Government had removed Article 370 in a historic decision … The joy and excitement in the people over the removal of 370 should be visible in the Republic Day celebrations this time. The tricolour should be seen flying over all houses in Kashmir, it is the least that can be expected,” it added.
The Sena mouthpiece further said that with the arrest of terrorists in the recent days, it hoped that “Republic Day will be celebrated safely in Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir.”
