JK government withdraws security cover of 919 undeserving people in state
New Delhi, Apr.5 (HS): In a major step the Govt. of Jammu and Kashmir has withdrawn security cover from 919 undeserving persons, since Governor’s Rule (20th June, 2018) in the State, thereby freeing 2,768 police personnel and 389 vehicles. The move follows strict stance by Union Home Ministry on inappropriate usage of scarce police resources in the State. It was observed by the centre that many undeserving persons managed to get security cover resulting in lack of State police resources for the public at large.
