CRPF ‘unleashes terror’ in Khanyar
Srinagar, Aug 17: Residents of Khanyar and other adjoining areas on Tuesday accused paramilitary CRPF troopers of “unleashing terror” and ransacking the houses.
Inhabitants of Mir Majid and Sheshgari Mohalla alleged that the paramilitary CRPF troopers broke window panes and doors of several houses following protest demonstrations in the nearby Shiraz Chowk last evening.
“They (troopers) barged into the localities last night and used abusive language besides damaging window panes and household goods,” residents said.
They said that the unruly troopers also damaged the windows and the doors of a local Masjid. “Houses of Muhammad Lateef Khan, Muhammad Ismail Sofi besides that of Qazi Irshad (photojournalist working with a Jammu based daily) were damaged to a large extent,” they added.
When contacted, Public Relation Officer, CRPF Prabakar Tripathi expressed ignorance about the incident.
“If someone has a compliant, they must register it with the concerned commandant,” he said. (PBI)
