CRPF thrash ambulance driver at Zaldagar
Srinagar, Feb 15: Paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel allegedly thrashed an Ambulance driver at Zaldagar area here when he was picking up hospital staff there.
District Magistrate Srinagar had directed the police and CRPF to ensure smooth movement of ambulances. However, in violation of the directive, the ambulance driver was thrashed.
The ambulance (JK0M-2464) of Lal Ded hospital, driven by Abdul Majid, was proceeding to pick up the hospital staff in and around Srinagar.
However, the ambulance was stopped by CRPF personnel at Zaldagar. “Without any reason, they dragged me out from the ambulance and hit me with batons. I was severely beaten up and it was only on intervention of some elderly women who staged protest and shouted slogans against this cruelty, that I was let off,” Abdul Majid told a local news agency CNS.
Meanwhile, at Rambagh area of Srinagar, several people were allegedly thrashed by CRPF personnel. “I was traveling with my grandmother in an auto-rickshaw. Despite seeing condition of my ailing grandmother, I was not allowed to proceed further from Rambagh,” said Javid Ahmed, a resident of Mehjoor Nagar. (CNS)
