Responding to SC verdict, J&K DGP removes red beacon lights from his official cars

Responding to Supreme Court judgment on use of red beacon by only high constitutional functionaries, the Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Ashok Prasad, on Wednesday took the lead in removing it from his official vehicles.

"While implementing the Supreme Court judgment in letter and spirit, we decided to first set our own house in order," Prasad said in an apparent reference to the use of red beacons on vehicles by all senior police officers in the state. In this context, he also referred to the statement of State Chief Minister Omar Abdullah that he does not need red beacon on his vehicle.

"I have removed red beacon from my vehicles and now, I request all others, who are not authorised for it as per the apex court order, to do the same," he said, adding that the state police and the traffic cops are competent enough to remove these lights in accordance with the apex court decision.
