J-K police equipped to take care of Salahuddin's threat: DGP

"I say anything he is giving statements--he is little too far from here--He is out of our reach--he should come here and issue statement (of threats)," Prasad told reporters here.

"As far as his threats of violence, J&K Police is perfectly equipped to take care of it (threats)," he said.

Prasad was replying to a volley of question about the threat of Syed Salahuddin to trigger violence and target panchayat members in Jammu and Kashmir.

"We have taken care of it (threats) in the past --I think police would be able to maintain level of order --we had been managing it for past 4-5 years now," he said.

As per the reports in the section of media in Jammu and Kashmir, Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin had last month said that New was "exploiting panchs and sarpanchs to project Kashmir as pro-India" and that they will "continue to be targeted no matter how much government tries to secure them."

Speaking at the occasion, the Additional Director General (ADG) of Armed Police, K Rajendra said "96 per cent of polling (in MLC elections yesterday) is an answer to Syed Salahuddin's threat".

Meanwhile, the DGP said that in a bid to upgrade capacity of the border fencing in the state to survive harsh weather conditions, the Government of India(GoI) is mulling on setting up group of engineers to look into the issue.

"I think Government of India is contemplating setting up a group of engineers who will look at the problem (all weather border fencing in J&K) to see whether it is possible or not," Prasad told reporters here.

"GoI is not considering anything which is going to be radically different which exist now--it is just to upgrade the capacity of that particular obstacle to survive harsh weather," the DGP said.

Prasad added that considering the fact that 90 per cent of militancy is coming from across the border, the all weather fencing would lead to zero infiltration in the state.
