J&K Police rewards cops, others for quick action on 'AMRAAM' remnants

Jammu, Mar 1(UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbag Singh on Friday rewarded police party, civilians and former Village Defence Committee members for their swift action and providing information about remnants of 'AMRAAM,' found in Reasi district.
On February 27, at about 1015 hrs, a telephonic call was received from Ex-VDC member that due to an explosion caused by an unidentified aerial projectile in village Mamankote Mallas, Tehsil Chassana of Reasi district, one Bagh Hussain (30), received grievous injuries, an official Spokesperson here said.
He said that a case was registered at Police Station Chassana. While Police Party rushed to the spot and the injured person was provided first aid and later with the help of locals, the Army personnel police shifted the victim to hospital for further treatment.
SI Ali Imran, SHO Police Station Chassana, during investigation saw the impact of aerial projectile was so great that splinters were scattered around 50 to 100 metres and a crater had formed and remnants of projectile were lying adjacent to the crater.
''Just adjacent to the crater, a glass pile was lying and while minutely examining, police could make out something embedded in the pile, but fished it out that it was a body cover metal piece of the projectile, weighing around 6-7 kg,'' said the Spokesperson.
''Through source, it was revealed that AIM-120C is an 'AMRAAM,' used by select category of fighter planes, including some used by Pakistan,'' said the Spokesperson and added that realising the importance of the seizure, their digital pictures were immediately taken and shared with senior formations of the police, which then, were further shared with other agencies.
However, many other electronic and mechanical items were also recovered on the spot.
''The time of occurrence coincided with the time, when there was an alert on account of reports of attempt of incursions made into the Indian Territory by fighter planes of neighbouring country in the twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri, thereby clearly establishing that Pakistan had used F-16 Fighter Planes, while attempting incursions inside the Indian Territory,” the spokesman added.
“The seized material was handed over to local Army representatives for further investigation while senior Police Officers took no time to realize the importance of valuable information evidence and ensured its collection and sharing at all appropriate levels,” he added.
The DGP gave commendation and cash reward to SI Ali Imran, Head Constable Mohd Iqbal, SgCt Mohidin, SPO Bashir Ahmed, SPO Rash Pal Singh and SPO Rajinder Singh for their prompt response to the incident and collection and seizure of relevant data and missile remnants which were shared with local army formations without any loss of time.
''The injured civilian, the VDC member and another civilian are also suitable rewarded for timely reporting in the case,'' he added.
