Narendra Modi government is equipping its police in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir with helicopter service for next three years for some clandestine operations. Police have invited bids from registered aviation companies for renting helicopters, officials in Jammu said. Flight operations are required for carrying police officers and central armed paramilitary force (CAPF) officials in all sectors of Jammu and Kashmir, as well as for other emergent purpose, they said without disclosing the emergent purpose.
The police floated the tender and sought bids from registered aviation companies having a fleet of minimum three airworthy light helicopters for its operations in Jammu and Kashmir on ‘leave and licence’ basis for a period of three years — January 16, 2023 to January 16, 2026, officials said.
Officials said the helicopters will be integrated in the ‘disaster management plan (DMP)’ and ’emergency response plan (ERP)’ being prepared by the police.—KMS
