Inspector-General of Police (IGP) of Kashmir Vijay Kumar on Sunday clarified that the order asking district police authorities to relocate non-local laborers to the nearest police and army camps is fake. Earlier in the day, it was allegedly reported that in view of the killings, district police authorities have been directed to bring all non-resident laborers in the valley to the nearest security camps for safety.
The alleged ‘advisory’ said, “All non-local laborers in your respective jurisdictions be brought to nearest police/CAPF/Army establishments/camps just now.” “Order asking district police authorities to relocate non-local laborers to Police or Army camps is fake,” Kumar said in a statement.
This came in wake of a terrorist attack in which two non-local laborers were shot dead and another injured in the Kulgam district of South Kashmir on Sunday.As per the CID sources, “Three non-Kashmiri laborers fired upon by terrorists in Wanpoh, Kulgam (in Jammu and Kashmir) identified as Raja Reshi Dev (dead), Joginder Reshi Dev (dead) and Chunchun Reshi Dev (injured). All are residents of Bihar.”
