Srinagar, September 21:

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh  has called the reports of the resignation of the SPOs and other policemen following the brutal killing of three special police officers ( SPOs) on Friday morning as  a “ false propaganda by mischievous elements.”

He was reacting on Twitter to the videos in circulation  in which the policemen claimed that they had resigned from the services. The Home Minister said,” Certain reports have appeared in a section of the media that some SPOs have resigned in Jammu and Kashmir. The J&K Police @JmuKmrPolice have confirmed that these reports are untrue and motivated. These reports are based on false propaganda by mischievous elements.”

He said that “ there are over 30000 SPOs and their services are reviewed from time to time. Some mischievous elements are trying to project that those SPOs whose services are not renewed due to administrative reasons, have resigned.”

He said that the militants have been pushed to corner and that’s why they committed certain acts ( the killing of SPOs) in sheer desperation . “ Due to pro-active actions of @JmuKmrPolice militants have been pushed to corner and are being driven to desperation. 28 terrorists have been neutralised this year in Shopian alone.”

Rajnath Singh  exhibited confidence that the “ Jammu and Kashmir has a professional and committed police force which is fully geared up to meet the security challenges, including those related to panchayat and urban bodies elections.”
