DIG who broke police-terror nexus gets Gallantry Award
208 awarded JK Police Medals
JAMMU, Aug 14: Jammu and Kashmir Police’s Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Atul Kumar Goel, who broke a police-terrorist nexus by arresting now-suspended Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) Davinder Singh, was among 94 personnel of the JKP, who have been awarded President Police Medals on the eve of Independence Day.
Goel, a 2004-batch IPS officer, had personally laid a police picket on a National Highway on January 11 this year after intelligence reports indicated that Davinder Singh, along with an Over Ground Worker of terror groups, was ferrying two terrorists to Jammu to escape the harsh winters.
After a brief altercation, when Singh attempted to throw his weight at the policemen at the checkpost to escape, Goel, according to eyewitness, stepped out of his vehicle and slapped the erring DySP, following which he was arrested.
The NIA, which took over the case subsequently, has already filed a charge sheet and alleged that the suspended DSP was being groomed by officials of the Pakistani High Commission in India to get more sensitive information.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defence, Government of India has honoured Head Constable Abdul Rashid Kalas with Kirti Chakra (Posthumously) and DIG Amit Kumar with Shaurya Chakra.
Amit Kumar had personally led several anti-militancy operations in the Valley especially South Kashmir. While leading one of the operations in South Kashmir after Pulwama attack, he was seriously injured.
