PDP for action against erring policemen
Srinagar Jan 4: People's Democratic Party ( PDP ) has condemned assault on Greater Kashmir correspondent Imran Muzaffar and demanded against the accused policemen.
In a statement a spokesman of the party said, “the present government had targeted every citizen of the state and journalists were no exception.”
“Government has become so much dependent on police and security forces for its survival that it was finding it impossible now to rein them in or enforce any discipline in their actions. We hope that the senior police officials would take cognizance of this harrowing tale of the young reporter and order such action as would set an example for others who try to cross the line,” the spokesman said.
“Media in this part of the country was discharging its duty in a high risk atmosphere and the strong arm methods of police only add to their problems. Imran was not on his professional beat at the time of the incident even as a common citizen he deserves justice and the police top brass would only help the image of the police organization by taking immediate and visible action against the erring officials,” the spokesman added.
Meanwhile, MLA Langate Er. Rashid has demanded stringent action against the cops involved in the “brutal act.”
“The lawlessness is at its peak in this lawless state. Even journalists are dragged in broad day light to police station and mercilessly thrashed there. How can a man feel safe and secure here?. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah should rise to the occasion and punish the cops involved in the act,” he said.
Meanwhile, Muslim League Jammu Kashmir acting secretary general Abdul Ahad Parra has strongly condemned manhandling of Greater Kashmir correspondent Imran Muzaffar by the police on Thursday at Hazratbal, terming it the worst example of “hooliganism and terrorism” by the state police.
