SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, Apr 24: Police on Wednesday questioned 10 youth in connection with hoisting of Pakistani and Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) flags and writing anti-India graffiti on Hari Parbat in old city here.
Flags of LeT and Pakistan appeared on Hari Parbat earlier this week and Police had registered an FIR under the Unlawful Activities Act against unknown persons.
Sources said the youth who were questioned mostly were the residents of old Srinagar. They said that some of the youth who were questioned have allegedly remained involved in stone throwing.
The paramilitary CRPF stationed inside the Hari Parbat Fort, according to the sources, expressed ignorance about flags appearing on the Fort. “We asked them, but they had no information about who wrote the graffiti and hoisted the flags of LeT and Pakistan,” sources added.
Superintendent of Police (SP) north Srinagar, Tahir Saleem told Greater Kashmir that at least half a dozen suspects were questioned. “Nobody has been detained. They were questioned and released,” he said.
