Srinagar, July 19: In the wake of curfew, the District Magistrate Er Farooq Ahmed Shah has started a helpline for the people needing assistance during the siege.
An official spokesman said the DM has directed the police and the paramilitary forces deployed in the City not to stop any ailing person from being taken to hospital. “There are clear-cut instructions from the DM that no patient be stopped from opting for any medical treatment and such cases don’t need any curfew passes,” the spokesman said. “However in case anyone faces problem, he or she can call on 9469179908 for assistance,” the spokesman added.
To a question, he said, the I-cards of essential services staffers and the media persons would be deemed as curfew passes. “Essential services staffers and the media persons do not need curfew passes,” he added.
Despite repeated attempts Er Shah did not respond to phone calls.
