Srinagar, Aug 7: With curfew continuing in Valley for 9th consecutive day today people alleged that CRPF and police were using brute force to harass them and damage their property.
Residents from different localities of Batamaloo told Greater Kashmir that window panes and doors of most houses located on the roadsides of the Firdousabad were damaged by the CRPF troopers who called it as an act of vengeance against the protest over the killing of Kashmiris.
“They don’t even allow peeping out of the window. Even women and children are beaten. During late hours the CRPF personnel resort to stone pelting to damage windowpanes,” said Sajad Ahmad of Batamaloo.
Complaints were received from several localities of Hazratbal here with people complaining that CRPF were barging into their houses late evening, once protests end, break window panes and beat up inmates.
“In Wanihama more than a dozen houses were damaged by CRPF by resorting to stone pelting. Such brutal act by the paramilitary forces and police was forcing people to go for nocturnal protests,” said Ghulam Rasool of Wanihama.
People from civil line areas like Natipora, Rambagh, Chanapora and Baghi-Mehtab also complained of harassment by CRPF and police.
Apart from damaging the property, the CRPF personnel were resorting to abusive language against women, said Mushtaq Ahmad of Natipora.
Reports in many localities of civil line areas have covered the windows with blankets as CRPF would throw stones insides houses.
The reports about damage to houses and shops by CRPF and police were also received from different areas of Budgam including Charar-i-Sharief, Chadoora and main Budgam.
“Last night, the CRPF along with police went into the New Colony locality of Char town and damaged window panes of several houses and beat up the inmates. They even fired some teargas shells,” said one, Shabir Ahmad.
CRPF and police were damaging the property and thrashing people at Soura in the late evening, the residents said.
