Miscreants pull down school wall at Alucha Bagh
ACCUSED HELD FOR DAMAGING PUBLIC PROPERTY; ADMIN ASSURES SECURITY
Srinagar, Oct 13: Following a protest demonstration by uniformed students police Wednesday swooped on the miscreants who had demolished the upcoming fence around the Government Middle School at Alucha Bagh.
Station House Officer, Shergarhi Police Station, Tanveer Ahmad said: “On the instructions from Executive Magistrate we have registered a case regarding trespassing and damage public property. We have arrested some persons, more arrests are likely.” Police has lodged FIR no 97/2010 under sections 448 and 427 of RPC.
According to the residents, for past few months there have been several attempts by some people living nearby to grab part of the school premises. However, the residents said, intervention by district administration and prompt police action averted all such bids.
Deputy Commissioner Me’raj Kakroo has assured security to the school premises till the fence is completed around the earmarked land. Divisional Commissioner had already directed district admonition vide order no Divcom/Relief-Dev (1) 2010 to “provide security for fencing of Govt Middle School Alucha Bagh.”
Muhammad Ramzan Rather, who is leading resistance against encroachment, said: “We appreciate the prompt administrative action against our complaint. The attempts to grab school property should not be tolerated.” Rather added that those trying to encroach upon the school premises have already grabbed state land where they have built their houses and business facilities.
“Had the administration taken note of earlier crimes things would not have come to this pass. It seems these people have got encouraged by their earlier attempts. But we hope the administration would not let any political intervention harm the cause of justice and public good,” Rather said.
Past week some miscreants had thrashed a government official who was part of the local resistance against encroachment of school compound.
