A departmental inquiry has been ordered, and an FIR has been registered in the case. This is the third such incident in which cops have deserted with weapons, and join militant ranks.
Apart from the bad news, the police also had a positive development which could also serve as a warning to the officers deserting the ranks as a SPO turned militant was killed yesterday in Pulwama district. SOG, and other security forces conducted a joint operation in which Raqib Bashir, a resident of Zadoor, Pulwama was shot dead when he was trying to flee the cordon in Godipura. Bashir is reported to have joined the LeT but his two accomplices managed to flee when large number of people started pelting stones on the security forces.
