Two women battalions being raised soon: DGP

Jammu, Mar 08 : Jammu and Kashmir’s Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh said that police were waiting for the final FSL report to confirm whether the liquid explosive material air-dropped in Jammu recently was chemical in nature.

He also said that two women battalions of J&KP will be raised soon and in future more posts will be created for women cops.

Talking to reporters on the side-lines of a function at Kathua district of Jammu, the DGP Singh said that two women battalions will be raised very soon and more posts will be created for women cops. “In early 90’s, when SoG was formed, many women officials joined the police force. Today, there is hardly any district where we don’t have women police officers and cops. Women police are playing a very important role and are working shoulder to shoulder with policemen on every front,” he said.

Replying to a query, the DGP said that recently explosive material was airdropped in Jammu and police were waiting for a final report as to whether the liquid explosives were chemical in nature. “Let the final FSL report come and only then we will comment on this issue further,” he said.

He said police never stop a peaceful protest as the people have every right to put forth their demands. “Our only concern remains that protest shouldn’t take violent turn and we should not be forced to use force,” the DGP said. kno
