Reiterates joint community effort to counter terrorism recruitment

SRINAGAR, NOV 18: The Public Grievance Redressal Programme initiated by DGP J&K R R Swain officially commenced on Saturday at Police Headquarters PeerBagh Srinagar. This initiative aims to address the difficulties and grievances of common citizens and provide them with an opportunity to express their concerns.

The program witnessed substantial participation from individuals representing different segments of society. DGP patiently listened to each grievance and assured the people that necessary action or redressal would be ensured wherever applicable.

Emphasizing the importance of genuine grievances, DGP Swain stated that the initiative is an opportunity for people with legitimate concerns to approach the Police Headquarters for redressal in Srinagar and Jammu within the scheduled time frame. He stressed that grievances should be authentic, and individuals should have utilized available redressal platforms before bringing issues to the DGP’s notice. False information-based grievances are liable for action, and he urged the public to present concerns within the bounds of established laws, rules, and procedures.

Speaking to the media about the program, DGP Swain expressed confidence in its effectiveness, stating that such initiatives have a significant message value for connecting with the people. He anticipated substantive results from the program, enabling him to understand various categories of grievances affecting police administration. Some grievances may be redressed instantly, while others require examination, and efforts will be made to refine and strengthen the system for transparency.

Regarding the joint community effort to counter terrorism recruitment, DGP Swain emphasized the need for collaboration among parents, schools, religious teachers, and friends to advise misguided youth. He stated that a joint community effort would help save lives, and security establishments, including the J&K Police, are working to prevent terror recruitment at the initial stage. The focus is on cutting off communication between misguided youth and those across the border attempting to lure them into terrorism.

DGP Swain addressed the issue of narco-terrorism, condemning the planned smuggling of narcotics from across the border to raise funds. He affirmed that anyone involved in narco trade would not be spared.

The grievance redressal program is scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month at PHQ Srinagar from 1400 hrs to 1600 hrs, providing an avenue for citizens to seek redressal for issues related to the police organization. Citizens were encouraged to approach officers of concerned police units and, if necessary, come with a written statement or application for prompt resolution. In case of any changes to the scheduled meeting, advance information through PHQ J&K’s social media handles will be provided to minimize inconvenience to the public.
