Tarigami demands magisterial probe

Srinagar, Jan 20: CPI (M) General Secretary and MLA Kulgam MY Tarigami Sunday vehemently condemned, what it called, police highhandedness and demanded magisterial enquiry into the Larnoo incident.
 In a statement issued here, Tarigami said the raid “conducted by police party comprising only male cops, in a sub-judice civil suit, is reflective of how the power is being misused by some elements in the police force without bothering about rules and regulations.” “The girls detained for the whole night have alleged harassment and torture by the police personnel which is not only condemnable but an unacceptable blot on the whole society,” he said.
 The CPI (M) leader remarked that the public outcry in the area in the shape of demonstrations and sit-in is not only justified but should be responded seriously. “This incident is a serious human rights abuse as the females were taken into custody without any lady constable accompanying the police party that raided the house. The house has been ransacked by the police where the family members were severely thrashed and the household items scattered everywhere,” Tarigami said and assured the people that the issue will be taken at the highest level in the government.
 While demanding a magisterial enquiry into the incident, Tarigami said a strong action should be taken against the party responsible for the raid and the officers who gave orders for such an action.”
