Police shoddy performace in J&K handling 11 Jul 16 - By Ramapati Sahana

Published on Jul 13, 2016

See this clip how the J & K Police & CRPF are dealing with situation in Kashmir. 
How can they control the crowd with such tactics.

Did not find a single IPS officer leading the police now or anytime in past but yet see them sitting in reserved top chairs. If there are any collateral damages or loss of life, the police will be blamed. Babus and / or IPS safe inside Ac offices.
Ultimately they will turn to Army for Solution. In military a young officer and JCOs lead their team and this is followed as a team upstream too. Nationalism, professionalism and self sacrifice are the core ethics.
Shame that after Uttrakhand deluge, Haryana riots, Kashmir flood, Chennai cloud burst and series of such aid to civil, in past 70 yrs have repeatedly exposed the hollowness of civil babu & Politicians nexus and caucus.
Just because military inside a cantonment cannot satiate hunger inside belly, below belly and the lust for riches in the cash box which police surely can, has relegated military to a sacrificial lamb. 

It is hundred times better than being an IPS , a political agent and being in AC offices when rest of the team is risking its life. 

Now Pay Commission wants to equate police forces with Armed Forces, wants bounty for a posting in Guwahati .... a sorry state of affairs.
Hope this reaches the Babus & Politicians in Delhi too but less chance to knock their conscience.

  1. Not sure these notes will reach to those whom u expect to.Anyway b careful ,after implementation Cpc no 7 we will have to salute them and obey their orders.CAPF r d hero''s of concerned ministries.COAS

  2. This is what happens if the Home Ministry involves its police forces to quell a mob. Who the hell ordered using pellet guns on the mob? Have they run out of the 'tear gas canisters'? Unprofessionals operating from their AC environment can't lead their forces. When they fail, ultimately that will happen, they will handover the mutilated situation to the Army.

    Learning to control crowds

    With the death toll rising to at least 38 in the clashes in the Kashmir Valley, the brutal crowd-control tactics of the police have come under the spotlight. They call into question the changes in standard operating procedure that were made after the violent protests of 2010, when scores of people died, mostly to bullet injuries. A decision had then been taken to introduce “non-lethal” pellets. But ammunition can only be as “non-lethal” as the tactics employed. And it is evident that the security forces have failed to exercise enough restraint, given the nature of injuries sustained by many young men and women. A high number of the injured have suffered pellet injuries in the eyes. For instance, in one Srinagar hospital alone, the Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital, of the 87 civilians who were brought in with injuries, about 40 had sustained pellet injuries to their eyes. Of these, doctors concluded that 19 persons, or almost half of those with eye injuries, may never recover their eyesight. Do the mathematics, and a terrifying picture presents itself. The Centre has obviously, and correctly, read the situation, and rushed a team of eye specialists to the Valley. But the tragically excessive loss of life, limb and sight this month must force a serious rethink on how policemen are equipped and trained to bring calm to the streets.

    Pellets have been fired from 12-bore guns for riot control. These are not long-distance weapons. Police around the world have been trained to aim for below the knee. The idea is that the pain caused by the pellets, usually made of metal and sometimes encased in rubber, acts as a deterrent without maiming or causing serious life-inhibiting injuries. Theoretically, it sounds viable. The reality that’s obtained in Kashmir this month tells another story. It speaks to a lack of both training and leadership. It is nobody’s case that it is an easy job to control a violent crowd, but it is the duty of the police to do so by causing as little injury as possible. They must ensure that the force they use is never disproportionately excessive to the cause of action. In the heat of the moment, there was a clear lack of restraint, evident in the numbers injured by the spray of pellets. Even as the best medical care is now sought to be provided, a more holistic healing must be expeditiously administered. It has to be a political exercise. This week of violence must also end with the assurance that the security forces have learnt important lessons — the most important among them being the adoption of more humane measures for crowd control.

  4. it is sad when 20years CRPF commandant is put under an IPS SP of 07/08 yrs for operations in the affected areas.The CAPF officers depute their coy commanders, generally inspectors every thing left to the IPS officer with no experience of handling insurgency So it has to be that way as shown in the picture. There is no fault of poor jawans who are targeted by the both sides.
