Arrests trigger protest
Srinagar, June 26: The arrest of six youth sparked off protest in north Kashmir’s Pattan town on Sunday.
Locals told Greater Kashmir that police accompanied by the paramilitary CRPF men detained six youth on the charges of stone pelting last night.
As the word about the arrest spread in the morning scores of people staged protests on Baramulla-Srinagar highway demanding their release.
“They are innocent and are not involved in stone pelting,” locals added.
However, they dispersed off peacefully after the officials assured them that they would look into the cases.
When contacted, Superintendent of Police Baramulla Dr Haseeb Mughal said that they pelted stones on the police station twice during the night. “We detained them for maintaining peace in the area,” he added.
