Jammu and Kashmir Police recognized the valuable contribution of a local resident in safeguarding the region’s security. On Thursday, a reward of Rs 3 lakh was presented to the individual who provided crucial information about a Pakistani drone in the Ramgarh sector of Samba district. The drone was subsequently recovered by security forces.

Senior Superintendent of Police Samba, Vinay Kumar, presented the cheque on behalf of the ADGP Jammu Zone during a felicitation ceremony. The event, organized jointly by the Samba Police and the Border Security Force (BSF), saw participation from IG BSF D.K Boora, DIG BSF Jammu Sector Chitter Pal, and other dignitaries.

This reward exemplifies the J&K Police’s recent policy announced by the Director General of Police (DGP), encouraging public cooperation in combating security threats.

The informer, a resident of village Nandpur, observed a suspicious object in their field near the Border Out Post (BoP) Chamliyal on January 18th, 2024. Recognizing it as a potential threat, they promptly informed the nearest BSF unit (148 Bn). Acting swiftly on this information, security forces recovered the Pakistani surveillance drone equipped with a camera from the informer’s field.

SSP Samba, Vinay Kumar, emphasized the importance of public cooperation in the fight against narco-terrorism, a significant threat sponsored by Pakistan. He further informed the public about various reward schemes recently launched by the DGP J&K for individuals providing information and intelligence related to trans-border tunnels, drones, narcotics, terrorist activities, and terrorists themselves.
