CRPF vs J&K Police: Why Did IG J&K Police Criticize CRPF For Anti-Militancy Operations?

Published

on

A comment by IGP Kashmir Range on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has come under fire when he said that “the performance of CRPF is not up to the mark. Is there a simmering rift between J&K Police and the CRPF?

Here, intelligence is generated by Jammu and Kashmir Police and operations are conducted by the Army and Rashtriya Rifles. The Name of CRPF is inserted just like that. This I know. I have been in CRPF”.

Vijay Kumar expressed this during a discussion with the DGP Dilbag Singh who was on a visit to Baramulla and was chairing an operational meeting with all SSP and Commandants of the North Kashmir. He was seeking feedback on the role of CRPF in Kashmir. 

The CRPF officers present there have communicated this to their senior officers in the chain of command. Such a remark is seen by the police officials as hurting the fluid coordination between sister forces.

“Such uninformed and uncalled for condemnation from an officer who himself was on deputation to the CRPF until recently — and reportedly still enjoys the perks and privileges of this elite internal security force — is nothing short of blasphemous.

If the IPS officer has any self-respect, he should surrender all the medals he may have earned during his CRPF tenure because he seemingly got them for doing nothing,” wrote Sanjiv Krishna Sood, a retired additional director general of Border Security Force.

He further adds that such comments are an indication of the contempt that the Indian Police Service (IPS) officers have for the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) over which they want to retain their stranglehold in contravention of the Supreme Court of India’s orders. 

Last year, the decision came after two months-long standoff between IPS and CAPF. The Supreme Court “granted the status of Group ‘A’ Central Services to RPF which shall not affect (the deputation of) the IPS”.

The IPS officers stood vindicated by this decision when several retired CAPF officers said that they couldn’t rise to the top because IPS would be chosen instead to lead them.

Sood further wrote that the dominance of higher-level posts by IPS officers is a serious compromise on national security because IPS officers are unfamiliar with the ethos and operational philosophy of these forces.

He criticised the mismanagement of the forces when the IPS officers violated the COVID-19 protocol. An IPS officer, Arun Kumar Sharma of Gujarat cadre, was appointed as Additional DG (Medical). Sood claims that he went against the advice of medical experts and reduced the quarantine period from 14 days to five days, resulting in a sudden increase of positive Covid-19 cases and forcing more than a hundred personnel to go into quarantine.

Imran Khan Defends Chinese Aggression On Border; Calls India A Big Threat To The Region

Published

on

Just moments after India issued a stern warning to China over the ongoing border dispute in Ladakh, Pakistan PM Imran Khan jumped in to defend it’s all-weather ally China.

Khan took to twitter to release a series of tweets attacking the Narendra Modi led government and defending Chinese actions in the region.

The cricketer-turned-politician alleged that the current regime in the country is becoming a “threat” to India’s neighbours. “Bangladesh through Citizenship Act, border disputes with Nepal & China and Pakistan threatened with false flag operation.

Khan also said that the current government is not only a threat to India’s minorities by relegating them to 2nd class citizens’ status but also a threat to regional peace. In the same tweet, he also referred to Indian Administered Kashmir as an illegal annexation and a crime under the Geneva Convention.

Pakistan had been silent on the ongoing dispute between New Delhi and Beijing which has intensified since the incidents in Pangong Lake in Ladakh and Nakula Pass in Sikkim.

The online assault from Imran Khan comes after Ravi Shankar Prasad and General VK Singh (Retd.), union minister under the current government, hit back at China for its increasing aggression. VK Singh even warned Beijing that no one can stare back at Modi’s India.

Tensions have flared up between Chinese and Indian troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley. Both sides have deployed thousands of troops on either side of the line of control, leading observers to draw comparisons with the 2017 standoff between India and China in Doklam.

Pakistan’s support for China is no surprise since both countries maintain warm relations. Beijing has invested heavily in developmental projects in Pakistan with the latest being the Diamer Basha Dam in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Earlier, Khan had called Indian assertions of infiltration from Pakistan’s side of the Line of Control (LoC) baseless and said it is a “continuation of a dangerous agenda”. He had also warned the international community of its responsibility to act against the war crimes and genocide being committed in Jammu and Kashmir.

PM Kha had stated the right-wing Indian government, under the cover of the pandemic, has continued its Hindutva supremacist agenda, driven by the fascist RSS ideology.

Pakistan Certain That India Will Launch Military Strikes On Pakistan Under False Flag Operations

As tensions between nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan flared-up after New Delhi revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, Islamabad has hinted at engaging with New Delhi if it reverses the Article 370 move.

Can Kashmir Conflict Drive India, Pakistan Towards A Nuclear War?

“The UNSC resolutions are the only mechanism to solve the Kashmir dispute and India should reverse its August 05, 2019 move before any substantive and meaningful dialogue is possible,” said Special Assistant to the PM Imran Khan on National Security Dr Moeed Yusuf.

Yusuf, speaking at an international conference titled “Covid-19 Kashmir Media Conference” accused India of using coronavirus as a cover to further expand its so-called oppression of Kashmiri people.

The global community, the UN and health-related international organizations need to take urgent note of the grave humanitarian situation in the region and provide immediate medical relief, Yusuf said.

From Nepal, Pakistan & China; India Suddenly Feels The Heat From All Three Neighbours

Lamenting further, Yusuf highlighted that the international media needs to understand the fascist ideology of India being promoted by the Modi government against Muslims and especially Kashmiris. He highlighted that fascism has not posed such a dangerous threat to regional and global peace since Adolf Hitler.

He said the rightful struggle of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination is a response to India’s brutal crackdown on people and Pakistan will continue its diplomatic and political support for the Kashmir cause at all global forums.

Reiterating Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s statements, Yusuf warned that India could use a false flag operation to support its expansionist plans by launching military action against Pakistan.

Imran Khan Cites ‘Fourth Geneva Convention’; Says India Committing War Crimes In Kashmir

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, for a second time in a week, Pakistan PM Imran Khan cautioned the global community that India was planning to attack Pakistan. Khan’s fresh warning came as India reportedly violated ceasefire violations along the Line of Control.

“I am reiterating again that a false flag operation is imminent from India in order to divert world attention away from its ongoing genocide in IOJK [Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir],” Khan tweeted

India termed Imran Khan’s allegations over false flag operation as “malicious propaganda”. When asked about PM Khan’s allegations, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said: “Can’t dignify malicious propaganda by a comment.”

Pakistani experts talking to EurAsian Times commented that India might be wanting to keep Pakistan Army on their toes on the eastern border and so that their presence is limited on the Afghan border where Taliban is keenly awaiting to regain power and New Delhi opposes it.

Imran Khan Cites ‘Fourth Geneva Convention’; Says India Committing War Crimes In Kashmir

Published

on

Two Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers have been killed after three terrorists launched an attack in Soura near Pandach area of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir.

The tensions in Kashmir even during the pandemic has been rising. A neighbourhood of 15 houses in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir was recently gutted by a calamitous fire during an exchange of fire between Indian security forces and militants.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan tweeted: 15 homes torched by Indian Occupation forces in Srinagar yesterday as 900k security forces subject Kashmiris to brutal oppression. Modi’s Hindutva Supremacist Occupation Govt is committing war crimes in IOJK including changing the demography in violation of 4th Geneva Convention

The Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, generally termed as the Fourth Geneva Convention is one of the four treaties of the Geneva Conventions adopted in August of 1949. While the first three conventions dealt with combatants, the Fourth Geneva Convention was the first to deal with the security of civilians in a war zone.

Kashmir Encounter

The encounter broke out on 19 May in the densely-populated town of Srinagar. Officials disconnected the internet and telephone services, a strategy often adopted by Indian forces so ensure militant sympathisers are not given a chance to assemble at the encounter site and disrupt the operations.

The Indian government also disallowed handing over the bodies of the two killed militants to their families, a recently introduced tactic by New Delhi to prevent large-scale funerals and project the militants as heroes.

One of the killed militants, Junaid Sehrai, is the son of Kashmir’s prominent separatist leader Ashraf Sehrai. His party, Hurriyat Conference, promotes the merger of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan and seen by many as a stooge of Islamabad.

Sehrai led the funeral prayers for his son in absentia. Junaid was a member of the Pakistan-backed Hizbul Mujahideen, declared as a terrorist group by India as well as the US and the EU.

Terror Continues In Kashmir

Officials said Constable Rana Mondal and Constable Jiaul Haque were killed terror attack which took place a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Junaid Sehrai and another militant were killed in Srinagar encounter.

Police sources said the militants snatched the weapons of the two BSF men before escaping. Officials said the BSF soldiers were taken to the hospital where both were declared brought dead. “Our two troops lost their lives in the attack. They were on routine patrolling duty when the militants attacked them,” a BSF officer said.

A 12-year-old boy, who was injured after a house collapsed during the encounter succumbed to injuries. “The boy had burn injuries. He died this evening,” SMHS Hospital medical superintendent Dr Nazir Chowdhary said.
