Dilbag Singh (DGP) told some reporters, “We will look into the demands of the families. We are open to corrections if anything has gone wrong. A police probe will also find out what went wrong.

“We will find out what happened in the Hyderpora encounter. We are for the safety of people and will not shy away from a probe.”
