Srinagar, Mar 06 (KNO): In a determined effort to curb the rampant issue of cattle smuggling, the police have initiated "Operation Kamdhenu" in the Jammu, Samba, and Kathua (JSK) police ranges. This crackdown aims not only to tackle the immediate smuggling activities but also to target the masterminds behind these illicit operations.

According to reports received by the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), under Operation Kamdhenu, a comprehensive strategy has been devised to scrutinize the activities of cattle smugglers. The focus is not just on apprehending the immediate perpetrators but also on identifying and registering the names of main conspirators in the FIR. Additionally, assets of the accused will be assessed as part of the investigation process.

Reports inform that key officers including SP Rural Jammu, DSP Headquarters Samba, and DSP (Dar) Kathua have been appointed as nodal officers to oversee the effective implementation of Operation Kamdhenu. This operation includes a meticulous approach where details such as the engine and chassis numbers, mobile numbers, and Aadhar card details of vehicles involved in smuggling will be documented and added to the case files.

The decision to register the names of main conspirators in the FIR marks a significant step towards holding the masterminds accountable for their actions. Government sources inform that this move is expected to provide law enforcement with valuable leads and enable them to pursue more effective measures against cattle smuggling networks.

It was informed further that Kathua district, within the JSK range, has witnessed a surge in incidents of cattle smuggling, making it imperative for Operation Kamdhenu to be rigorously enforced in this region. By targeting the main actors behind these illegal activities, the police aim to significantly mitigate the issue of cattle smuggling in the area.

"To ensure the integrity of the operation and prevent any potential escalation of religious tensions, the police have decided to limit media coverage of cases related to cattle smuggling. This decision includes refraining from releasing photos or videos of foiled smuggling attempts, with the intent of avoiding any undue provocation of sentiments," Official sources informed—(KNO)
