Srinagar: Police Headquarters in its continuous endeavours has focused on establishing moot courts as a part of training programme at all Police training institutions in order to give an overview of court proceedings to its investigation officers that will help in identifying the lacunas during the course of Investigation.
This was stated by Director General of Police (DGP), Dilbag Singh after inaugurating the newly established Moot Court for the trainees/Personnel during his visit to Police Technical Training Institute (PTTI) Vijaypur Monday.

Speaking on the occasion the DGP commended the efforts of PTTI Vijaypur and expressed hope that the moot court mock trials would surely help trainees/Police personnel to comprehend the court customs better and will also refine their abilities to fix investigation gaps if any. He directed to arrange more such Moot Court mock drills in future to improvise the professionalism, skills of prosecution, witnesses and investigating officers in particular so that cases like NDPS/UAPA could be brought to their logical conclusion in the interest of justice besides other cases.
The DGP said that a dedicated effort from everyone is necessary to improve the conviction rate of heinous crimes. He said that good quality Investigation of UAPA & NDPS cases is also a weapon to curb militancy and drug menace from the UT.
