Killings always pained me: Vaid

Srinagar, Sep 7: The outgoing Director General of Police (DGP) Dr. S P Vaid Friday said that the killings have “always pained” him.

Dr. Vaid was quoted saying by news agency Kashmir News Service that whenever there was a killing, be that of a security personnel, a militant or a civilian, his family “would come before his eyes and that would be painful for him.”


Vaid further said that he has been “able to bring down the stone pelting incidents drastically that is why the CASOs are there”.

He hoped that the new team under new DGP would succeed to bring a complete “normalcy”.

The former DGP thanked public, police, forces, Shrine board and others for the incident-free Amarnath yatra. He said all have contributed in making the yatra incident free and urged national media not to make things sensational.
