Soldiers thrash people in Baramulla
Cops Register FIR
Baramulla, Oct 31: Army soldiers allegedly went berserk in Baramulla town on Wednesday morning, beating several people to pulp.
According to reports, unidentified soldiers appeared in a Rakshak vehicle at army check-post near Kanthbagh. The soldiers stopped three vehicles near the check-post and reportedly thrashed the travelers ruthlessly without assigning any reason.
The victims included three employees of Animal Husbandry Department Baramulla. They have been identified as Tariq Hussain Qadri, Farooq Ahmad Magloo and Muhammad Sayed Najar.
“We were heading for Srinagar in a departmental vehicle to get poultry birds for Baramulla. As we reached near army check-post Kanthbagh, we were stopped by soldiers. Despite showing our identity cards, the soldiers who were probably drunk start thrashing us without any reason," said Tariq Hussain Qadri, who was admitted in the district hospital.
Police later registered an FIR against unknown soldiers in police station Baramulla.
A police officer told Greater Kashmir that 8 people had approached the police station Baramulla against the thrashing and an FIR was lodged against the soldiers.
