MHA denies reports of J-K SPOs' resignation .
New Delhi [India], Sept 21 (ANI): The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Friday refuted reports of the resignation of some Special Police Officers (SPOs) of Jammu and Kashmir, terming it "untrue and motivated" .
The Home Ministry in a statement said that reports which appeared in a few sections of the media are "based on false propaganda by mischievous elements ."
"Jammu and Kashmir has a professional and committed police force which is fully geared up to meet the security challenges, including those related to Panchayat and urban body elections . Some mischievous elements are trying to project that those SPOs whose services are not renewed due to administrative reasons have resigned," the MHA statement read .
