Srinagar, Oct 25: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday urged state police not to attack families of terrorists.
Addressing the passing out parade of recruits at the police training centre in Ganderbal, Mufti asserted “Do not attack families of militants just because they (militants) attack families of policemen. You must maintain the difference.”
The Chief Minister said policemen were witnessing many difficulties in the discharge of their duties, but they had set a perfect example of discipline and sacrifice.
She stated efforts must be taken to ensure surrender of local militants who had joined militancy for one or the other reason.
The remarks followed reports that houses of some terrorists had been ransacked by police personnel in south Kashmir regions.
