HC asks police not to file challan against DySP
Police Officers At Loggerheads
Jammu, Apr 14: Jammu and Kashmir High Court has directed the police not to file final investigation report (Challan) as of now against Muhammad Aslam DySP Headquarter Reasi, who was booked on a complaint filed by his superior officer.
The directions were passed by Justice Mansoor Ahmed Mir in a petition, seeking quashment of FIR, filed by the DySP, Muhammad Aslam.
The court after hearing the counsel for the petition, advocate Sheikh Altaf Hussain, disposed off the interim application with the direction to the respondents not to file the final report in the case, unless directed by the court. The court, however, permitted the police to carry on its investigation.
According to the petitioner, he was transferred from Kathua and posted as DySP Headquarter Reasi, on March 30, 2011.
Accusing the then SSP of holding a personal grudge against him, the petitioner claimed that on December 8, 2011 he was asked to look after the security arrangements in connection with the visit of Dr Farooq Abdullah, Union Minister, at Sports Stadium Reasi.
“In the said order petitioner was asked to ensure the deployment inside and outside the stadium besides other duties specifically mentioned in the deployment order. The petitioner on December 10, 2011 after checking the outer deployment entered through the main VVIP gate of the stadium for identifying the location for parking ambulance but the Additional SP did not allow him to enter on the pretext that he has not been assigned any duty in the deployment order,” he submitted.
The petitioner further alleged that the Additional SP directed her body-guards, driver, wireless operator and other policemen to throw the petitioner out of the stadium and locked the VVIP gate. “On this Head Constable Charanjeet Singh and Subash Chander selection grade constable and other police personnel assaulted the petitioner”.
He claimed that despite having conducted the medical examination and requesting for a legal action, the then SSP failed to take any action and instead booked him in “false and frivolous FIR NO 186/2011 u/s294/211/186/509 RPC”.
