J-K Police directs officers for quality probe in NDPS, UAPA cases

To review the progress of “targets and goals” set for the Jammu zone in the Union Territory, the J-K police on Thursday held a review meeting on different fronts for the year 2022.
This review meeting was chaired by the Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Dilbag Singh, at the police headquarters. In the meeting, the DGP lauded the officials at each level for achieving the pre-set targets and goals that were set for this year (2022) and stressed, “They need to contribute more by conducting supervisory meetings and by ensuring closer supervision of important cases, especially the cases of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances or Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, for better results for the remaining period of the year.”
The DGP further advised the officials to improve the quality of investigation and prosecution to increase convictions.
He also impressed upon the officers the need to identify more investigating officers and train them to deal with the increasing number of cases. He said that investigators have to equip themselves with the best investigation skills and take each and every necessary measure to ensure convictions in UAPA, Narco, and other sensitive cases in the courts of law.
DGP Dilbag Singh also directed the officers to augment measures for improving the capability of personnel in dealing with Narco and UAPA cases.
As per an official release from the Police Media Center, DGP Singh then referred to the directions of Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and flagged that the drug menace has emerged as a big threat as the ill-gotten money from the drug trade is being used for terror activities.
While urging officers to speed up and improve the quality of NDPS investigations in order to increase the rate of conviction, DGP Singh also urged them to work on mission mode on both the NDPS and UAPA fronts.
He directed the officials to destroy the drug-related crops and advised district officers to initiate the seizure of properties raised by drug proceeds.
Highlighting the need for establishing pairwise cells at the district, range, and zonal levels, the DGP exhorted the officers to ensure that the police witnesses are well prepared for deposing in court. He directed the officers to dispose of the pending cases on the basis of their sensitivity in the shortest time possible.
Referring to the bovine (cattle) smuggling, here, the DGP said, “It is an organised crime, and there is a need to break the nexus further.” He directed officers to put in more effort to identify the main culprits behind the nexus and take strenuous action against the ones involved.
The DGP also stated that the Police Headquarters was ready to provide any assistance required to improve the quality of investigations and police personnel’s work.
