Amit Shah visits kin of Jammu-Kashmir inspector killed in terror attack

Spelling out the policy of the new government at the centre, Amit Shah has made it clear to the security officials that there should be zero tolerance towards terrorism in Kashmir

Srinagar: Home Minister Amit Shah Thursday visited the family of Jammu and Kashmir Police inspector Arshad Ahmed Khan, who was killed in a terror attack in Anantnag on 12 June. Home minister Amit Shah is on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir.

Khan, 37, was injured in the terror attack and later flown to Delhi in an air ambulance for specialised treatment. However, he succumbed to injuries at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Khan is survived by a wife and two sons, aged four and one.

Five CRPF personnel were killed in the terror attack, in which a lone Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM)terrorist targeted a patrol team of the paramilitary force.

Khan, the SHO of Saddar Police station in Anantnag, reached the site soon after.

The moment he stepped out of his official bulletproof vehicle, along with his service rifle, a barrage of bullets were fired by the terrorist. One ricocheted from the butt of his service rifle and hit his liver and duodenum. Even in that condition, the officer kept firing bullets at the terrorist before he collapsed, officials had said.

On Wednesday, Shah held an extensive review meeting with security forces to discuss arrangements for Amarnath Yatra. He reviewed the development scenario in Jammu and Kashmir and sought the state government’s focus on accelerating development, building infrastructure, good governance, inclusive growth for all communities and employment generating schemes for the youth.

Sources said that this is for the first time that no local political parties received an invitation to meet the home ministers. They said that local political parties were expecting a meeting with Amit Shah so that they could put forward their point.

On Thursday, the home minister also reviewed the overall security situation and met several delegations.

Spelling out the policy of the new government at the centre, Amit Shah has made it clear to the security officials that there should be zero tolerance towards terrorism in Kashmir.

The major focal points were zero tolerance for terror, strict action for terror funding and the rule of law should be upheld, said AP Maheshwari, Secretary internal security MHA.
