PM endorses 'non-lethal' ways to end JK violence
“We need to revisit standard operating procedures and crowd control measures to deal with public agitations with non-lethal, yet effective and focused measures. We also cannot have an approach of one size fits all," the Prime Minister said while addressing the second-day session of the 45th conference of top cops here.
Stressing on the need to revisit crowd control measures, Dr Singh said, “Despite the curtailment of militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir, the public order dimension in the state has become a cause of serious concern."
"We need to train our police forces more effectively," the PM said, observing that policing has turned more complex over the years.
These remarks comes in the wake of over 60 civilian deaths in CRPF and police firing in the valley since Jul 11.
