SRINAGAR, May 6: Jammu and Kashmir Police has been playing a bigger role to maintain law and order and ensure the security of the people of the State.

This was stated by the Director General of Police (DGP), Kuldeep Khoda while addressing the newly recruited Constables at Bakhshi Stadium here this afternoon. He said that besides professional policing the organization is sharing its responsibilities in other fields effectively and the people of the State are whole-heartedly cooperating with it to redress the problems faced by them while carrying out their day-to-day activities. Police-Public relations have improved considerably and the people have been very cooperative in tackling the criminals and other social evils, he added.
