Budgam woman seeks police protection
Srinagar, Apr 5: A woman of Phadipora Budgam has sought police protection after allegedly facing continuous threats from a politically connected person.
60-year old Hajira Begum has been living in constant fear due to threats to her life. Hajira’s ordeal started when her brother Abdul Aziz Sheikh sold ancestral land. “My brother fraudulently sold a large chunk of the land to Abdul Ahad Sheikh a local villager. Despite my opposition, he started construction of a school building on the disputed land and threatened me of dire consequences,” Hajira told Greater Kashmir.
Left with no option, Hajira filed a petition in Court. After hearing the arguments of both sides, the Judicial Magistrate Chadoora on March 22, 2012 had directed police to maintain status quo.
“However, despite Court order, Sheikh continued to undertake construction on the disputed land,” she alleged.
When contacted SHO Chadoora, Manzoor Ahmed said the construction was stopped on Court directions. “However, in recent hearing, the Court did not say anything of continuing the status quo so we stopped interfering in the matter,” the SHO said.
However, Hajira’s counsel maintained it was binding on police to execute the Court order. “It is understood that status quo had to continue until Court didn’t revoke its decision,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hajira’s alleged she has been receiving continuous threats from the person who was undertaking construction on her land. “I appeal police to provide protection to me at the earliest. The person who threatened me enjoys support of some politicians and police officers,” she said.
