The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday held a recruitment rally for 698 posts of sub-inspector in the state. The J&K Police got overwhelming response with nearly 3,000 candidates turning up for the rally.

This has come up on the backdrop of various terrorist groups warning youth in the valley against joining security forces. Terror groups had also released many videos to warn youths against joining armed forces.

The recruitment rally was a success despite the incident of abducting and killing of Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz by Hizbul Mujahideen militants in Shopian district four days ago. The incident didn’t act as deterrent to the recruitment drive.
