Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Police recently hosted a three-day water sports festival in Srinagar city to promote tourism in the Valley.
The festival was titled ‘Jashn-E-Dal’.
The festival was organized by Jammu and Kashmir Police under civic action programme in collaboration with water sports association after three years, reports ANI.
“This event was last organised in 2017. ‘Jashn-e-Dal’ has been one of the favourite events as far as the celebration of these beautiful water bodies are concerned. However, there was a break for some time, but this year, despite the COVID-19, we thought this is the time to bring people who are interested in water bodies to the sports field — to the Dal Lake,” Dilbagh Singh, Director General J-K Police told reporters as quoted by ANI.
“The Jammu and Kashmir Police has organised this three-day festival starting today. We have a very large number of participants as over 200 boys and girls will be participating in this festival,” Singh told the Indian news agency.
