MUTHI RESIDENTS BLOCK ROAD, PROTEST POLICE INACTION
Jammu, May 23: Angered over the police inaction against two persons who allegedly attacked a local boy, hundreds of Muthi residents blocked Jammu-Poonch national highway for around one hour Wednesday morning.
Eyewitnesses said that early in the morning when a boy of locality went to a local temple, one Bishan Dass and his son Suresh had a verbal spat with the youth over some issue. “The boy and Bishan Dass exchanged heated arguments while in the meantime Suresh Kumar son of Bishan Dass got infuriated and tried to attack the boy with a sharp edged weapon” a resident claimed, adding that some other people who were present in the temple intervened and saved the boy.
Later, witnesses said, Bishan Dass along with his son Suresh Kumar went to concerned police station for lodging a complaint against the boy. In the meantime, other residents along with the victim boy also arrived at police station for lodging a complaint against Bishan Dass and his son. The residents informed the police officers that the accused was in the habit of abusing the worshippers time and again without any reason.
“The police officer assured the residents to register a complaint against the father son duo only after recording the statement of all the locality residents” sources said. They further added that although the police officer visited the locality and recorded the statements of locality residents, but didn’t take any action against the accused persons which angered the residents.
Angered over the police inaction, hundreds of inhabitants of Muthi locality at around 9:15 AM lodged strong protest demonstration and blocked Jammu-Poonch national Highway. The protesters were shouting slogans against the police officials and the accused persons. Within few minutes hundreds of vehicles got struck and long queue of vehicles was seen on either side of the highway.
After getting the information of road blockade, SDPO West Rouf Lone and SHO Janipur rushed to the spot and tried to pacify the protesters. SDPO assured the protesters to register FIR against the accused persons, after which the protesters got pacified. Later a case was registered against the father son duo.
