J&K: Kupwara Police to use GPS anklets to monitor terror accused


Kupwara (Jammu and Kashmir): In one of its kind attempts, Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara Police has used GPS tracker anklets for monitoring the terror accused who are out on bail, according to a police statement from Friday.

By doing so, Kupwara police became the first district in Kashmir Zone to use GPS anklets on a bail-out accused in a case linked to narcotics. The GPS tracker anklet is a wearable device affixed around the ankle of the person to monitor and track their movement.

ASJ Court Kupwara, while granting bail in FIR, ordered deploying GPS anklets on accused Abdul Majid Bhat and Aabid Ali Bhat for better surveillance over the movement of the bailees.

In compliance with the court order, the Kupwara Police team led by ASP GM Bhat, Deputy SP Ameen Bhat, and SHO Kupwara Inspector Ishaq deployed the GPS anklets for close monitoring of the accused.
