“A police party barged into my house and severely thrashed the inmates. My wife, Aisha, son Bilal Ahmad Baig and a daughter sustained serious injuries,” said Ghulam Muhammad Baig who was among the protesters.
He said his son Bilal Ahmad Baig has lost one of his kidneys in police firing on civilians during 2010 unrest. “My younger son Waseem Ahmad Baig was falsely implicated in stone pelting cases. However he was acquitted of all charges many years ago.  From past few days, police is looking for Waseem. Today police crossed all limits by ransacking our house and thrashing my family members. We make a fervent appeal to Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to order a probe into the matter and take action against the accused cops,” Waseem’s aunt Hameeda said.
