Militants were desperate, so they attacked policemen: DGP
SRINAGAR, May 23: Director General Police, K Rajendra Kumar today said the killing of three policemen in twin attacks by militants was a “desperate act” by them to show their presence here.
“It (killing of policemen) is a desperate act, attacking unarmed policemen. It is basically a desperate act to show their presence,” Kumar said after praying tributes to slain personnel here.
He said the militants have become desperate after security forces registered success by eliminating their leadership and newly infiltrated groups.
Of late, you have been seeing that security forces are getting success in neutralising (militant) leadership. Newly infiltrated groups have also been wiped off,the police chief said.
DGP said terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen’s claim owing responsibility for the two incidents, will be investigated.
