After the latest killing of a BJP leader in Tral town of Pulwama, IGP Kashmir range Vijay Kumar on Thursday has given fresh instructions to all the protected persons that they should not move out anywhere without their PSO’s.
According to KNO, IGP requested all the protectees to adhere to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
In a tweet, the IGP said visits of protectees are allowed only after ground assessment of local threats is done by the police.
“Request is to all protectees not to #violate SOPs and risk their lives unnecessarily,” the police tweeted.
The fresh advisory was issued by police a day after suspected militants killed BJP leader and chairman Municipal Committee Tral Rakesh Pandita.
