Amarinder defends Punjab Police policy on terrorism
Jalandhar, Mar 22 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today defended the police authorities' tactic of using some former militants as 'police cats' (undercover operatives) to counter terrorism in the state.
Talking to reporters at Nakodar near here Captain Singh said nothing was wrong with using these people in uprooting terrorism and subsequently providing them opportunity to re-settle in normal life and join the social mainstream.
He said it was the state government's policy to counter terrorism.
Capt Singh said as many as 21 such 'police cats' were facilitated and re-settled so as to help them lead a normal life.
He added that no action was needed against these people in respect of their past life.
