The meeting on Friday evening headed by Inspector General ( Jammu zone) K Rajindra discussed all necessary steps to be taken for smooth conduct of assembly elections and maintaining law and order during the annual darbar move, a police spokesman said here on Saturday.

The IG asked police personnel to remain alert to keep the trouble mongers at bay and ensure that the upcoming polls are held in a peaceful atmosphere.

“Frequent checking and search operations should be launched in suspected areas and hard work is required to neutralise the dreaded militants operating inside the territory,” Rajindra said during the meeting.

Further he advised the police personnel to ensure humane approach while dealing with public. However, he cautioned them to remain extra vigilant and stern while dealing with criminals and anti-social elements.

“It is necessary to remain extremely vigilant and alert in view of the forthcoming general assembly elections in the state as terrorists and anti-national elements seem to be determined to disturb peace,” he added.

The IG was apprised of the overall security scenario prevailing in the region. The meeting was attended by DIG of Jammu range A Q Manhas, SSP (PCR) Shakeel Ahmed and SSP of Jammu Manohar Singh among others.
