Sale of Combat dresses goes on Unchecked despite ban

Despite strict ban on the sale and purchase of the combat uniforms in most parts of Jammu and Kashmir  its rampant sale is still going on unchecked under the nose of various district and police authorities.

With Lok Sabha polls approaching and political activity peaking with every passing day the security forces have already  expressed fears about the possible misuse of combat dress by the militant organisations before  attacking strategic locations and spreading fear in the minds of the common people.

It may be recalled that militants in army combat uniforms in the past, have carried out attacks on army and paramilitary forces both in Jammu and Kashmir valley.

Sources further said that fearing misuse of combat uniforms that are easily available in the market the state government may be well advised  to look into the matter and impose ban on its sale and purchase strictly.

Though the district administration is supposed to maintain a tight vigil on selected shops selling such items still lack of manpower and work culture prevents them from daily monitoring of their stocks and vulnerable businessmen often fall prey to the unjust requirement of unauthorised customer.
