Jammu and Kashmir Police have said that DSP Davinder Singh, who got caught along with two terrorists while traveling in his car, should treat like a terrorist. "Singh has worked on several anti-militancy operations. But the circumstances under which he got arrested is a heinous crime," police added.
They identified the cop as Deputy Superintendent of Police, Davinder Singh, who was formerly with the Special Operations Group and was also awarded the President’s Medal for bravery on 15 August in 2019.
While refusing to divulge details of the probe so far, Kumar said that after the news about their detention on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in south Kashmir on Saturday spread, some militants escaped from a hideout in Shopian.
They detained him along with the top commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba Naveed Babu and Altaf of Hizbul Mujahideen, the police said. Director-General of Police Dilbagh Singh did not respond to repeated attempts to seek comments from him on the issue.
