Be more humane, Minister urges J&K police

Lauding the role of the Jammu and Kashmir police in meeting various challenges, Revenue and Relief Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri on Saturday asked the force to adopt a more humanitarian approach while dealing with people.

Addressing the Police Commemoration Day Parade function here, Mr. Veeri said the police force was “one of the best” in the country. “You have taken on many roles successfully and people have a lot of expectation from you. You should adopt a [more] humanitarian approach when dealing with common people,” he said at the function skipped by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

Mr. Veeri, chief guest at the parade, said Ms. Mufti could not attend as she was not well. Deputy Speaker of Legislative Assembly Nazir Ahmad Gurezi, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, Minister of State Mir Zahoor, civil administration and police officers attended the parade.

Mr. Veeri recalled the role of the police in disaster management, saying their rescue operations during the 2014 floods were “appreciated by one and all”.

DGP S.P. Vaid said the police force was always ready to meet any challenge. Later, they paid floral tributes to the fallen personnel at the police martyrs’ memorial.
