Eye on polls, J&K restores security of ‘hundreds’ of netas

NEW DELHI: With the election process underway, the Jammu & Kashmir government has decided to restore the security of a large number of political persons which was withdrawn over the past few months as part of a review aimed at curbing “inappropriate usage of scarce police resources”.

“The security cover of a large number of political persons in J&K is being restored partly due to elections as they will be required to campaign amid terrorist threats and partly due to the threat that they face,” a senior intelligence officer told on Sunday.

The J&K government had withdrawn security cover from 919 “undeserving” people since it came under governor’s rule last year, freeing 2,768 police personnel and 389 vehicles for regular police duties. There were 22 separatist leaders among 919 people whose security was withdrawn. Sources said this was a clear message to those indulging in anti-national activities.
