Ishfaq, a pharmacist, was on his way to home from Nowgam on the south City outskirts when CRPF men stopped him near Natipora.
“A group of CRPF men pounced on me and beat me up ruthlessly. I came down from the motor cycle and tried to show them my curfew pass but they snatched my wallet,” said Mir who was removed to Bone & Joint Hospital Barzulla.
The wallet carried his I-card, license, insurance papers and most importantly a cash of Rs 12,000, his family members said. The wallet and the motor cycle, is lying with the CRPF, they said. The troopers posted there deny the charges.

When contacted the CRPF PRO Prabakhar Tripathi said he was in a meeting. But later he didn’t pick up the phone despite repeated attempts.
