Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said Wednesday that there would be zero tolerance to incidents like the Dadri lynching case.
“We have issued an advisory to the states to ensure that such incidents do not occur, which lead to law and order problem,’’ he said while talking to reporters here. “Though law and order is a state subject, we want zero tolerance to such incidents.”
Mehrishi arrived here on a two-day visit to review the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. Accompanied by senior officers from civil administration, BSF and the police, he visited forward BSF posts at Abdullian and R S Pura. The BSF officials apprised him of the steps initiated by the paramilitary force in defending the country’s frontiers, especially to check infiltration from across the border.
Talking to villagers at Abdullian, he assured that steps would be initiated for their safety in the event of firing from Pakistan side. The assurance came when villagers apprised him of the hardships being faced by them in the event of firing from Pakistan side.
The Home Secretary also inspected a bunker. The villagers demanded construction of more bunkers where they can take shelter whenever there is escalation on the border, besides compensation in lieu of land which has gone into the erection of barbed wire fence.
