J&K DGP Shesh Paul Vaid appealed to celebrities to lend their support in raising funds for the families of SPOs who have lost their lives fighting militancy. He mentioned cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, as well as Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher to support the fundraising schemes initiated to help 499 slain special officers’ families. He also appealed to the rest of the country to come forward and help rehabilitate these families. “Let us stand up for those who gave their lives for our safety.” Around 32,000 SPOs have been engaged by the Jammu and Kashmir Police for anti-militancy operations in the state in the last six years.
