New Delhi gets negative inputs on policing in Kashmir, heads likely to roll

Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 19: With the prevalent crisis festering in Kashmir and state government failing to tackle the worsening situation, the central government is understood to have got negative inputs on police top brass holding command in Kashmir.
Sources said at a recently held meeting the Home Ministry and the Prime Minister's office have got reports that since unrest of July 2016 it has been the police, which essentially is to be made accountable for letting the situation go out of hand. Reports said a similar meeting was held in the national capital on Wednesday as well.
Sources said the New Delhi learnt that some influential police officers who actually failed on the ground, happen to hold the key charges only because of their proximity with some of the Ministers in the People's Democratic Party led government. Some of them are relatives of Ministers.
Sources said the police seem to be working largely at the behest of some politicians from ruling PDP without utilizing its command and professionalism to fullest.
Since the recently held by-polls for Parliament constituency seat of Srinagar, New Delhi is of the opinion that police couldn't properly analyze the ground situation in time and it been done, the violence witnessed on the day of polling c
New Delhi will ask the state government to revamp the police administration in Kashmir with some capable lot. There's no shortage of talented officers, but the problem is that political connections have been taking precedence over merit.
uld have been avoided.
"Had the police top brass given an honest report, the polling could have been deferred but it seems that police officials gave a nod only to please some politicians," said a top source.
New Delhi has learnt that the biggest blunder on the part of the state police remained that it didn't ask the government to keep schools shut on April 17, when Valley-vide protests erupted at educational institutions in Kashmir.
"Had police taken a sensible decision and asked the civil administration to keep the schools shut for a day, it would have prevented situation from going out of hands," said a source close to the corridors of power.
What has pinched the central government further is that instead of making police accountable the state government has attached the Principal of Government Degree College Pulwama.
"This is a sheer case of mishandling of a very sensitive situation. There seems to be shortage of able hands at key positions in the government on the whole," said a top functionary.
Sources said New Delhi will ask the state government to revamp the police administration in Kashmir with some capable lot. "There's no shortage of talented officers, but the problem is that at places political connections have been taking precedence over merit."
