Srinagar, Feb 23: The timely intervention of police Tuesday prevented clashes between the employees of Wakf Board and Dal dwellers at tourist hub of Boulevard.
The Dal dwellers staged protests at the Boulevard demanding action against an official of Walk Board for allegedly beating a lake dweller and damaging his car on Monday. They shouted slogans against the police and government accusing them of shielding the accused.
Eyewitness said the lake dwellers and Wakf Board employees exchanged heated arguments with each other. However, as they tried to physically attack each other, a police team led by Deputy Inspector of Police, Nehru Park, Muzaffar Shah reached the spot and prevented the situation from taking a violent turn.
The DSP along with other officials pacified the lake dwellers assuring action against the accused after which they dispersed off peacefully.
The Divisional Officer of Nehru Park Police Post, Mushtaq Ahmad said FIR has already been registered in the matter.
The DO said a lake dweller, Muhammad Rafiq in his complaint has alleged that a senior official of Wakf Board along with other employees assaulted him and smashed windscreen of his car (JK014 8284) in premises of Gulmarg Hotel.
The DO said on the complaint an FIR 23/10 under sections 307, 148 and 109 RPC was registered.
However, he said the Wakf Board has refuted the charges and filed a counter FIR against Rafiq. He said the Wakf Board states that Rafiq assaulted its officials when they objected to parking of his vehicle in their premises.
“On the Board’s complaint we have registered an FIR 24/10 under section 353 and 447 (A). We will thoroughly investigate matter and take action according to law,” the DO said.
