‘SMC staffers thrashed me over parking issue’
Police files case
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Apr 24: A government employee on Wednesday accused the Srinagar Municipal Corporation staffers of thrashing him outside the SMC office in Karan Nagar area while police has filed a case.
Ghulam Muhammad, working as a driver with the Chief Medical Officer Srinagar said he had hurriedly parked his ambulance on the road “as there was no way to drive the vehicle inside the office because of space constraints.”
This, he said, annoyed the civic body staffers. “When I came out the SMC staffers caught hold of my collar and started bashing me for having parked the vehicle there,” the complainant told Greater Kashmir.
He said some other SMC staffers too joined in and chased him with rods in their hands. “Had I not managed to run away, they would kill me,” Muhammad said adding he straight rushed to Police Station Karan Nagar and filed a complaint. The SHO Karan Nagar confirmed that a case has been filed vide No 32/2013 under Section 353. Muhammad’s colleagues sought strict action against the accused.
The SMC officials, however, said they were not aware of any such incident. “If anybody had complaint, he should have approached us. But nobody turned up with any complaints,” the Chief Enforcement Officer, Hakim Aijaz told Greater Kashmir.
