Unidentified persons disarm MLA’s PSO
Pulwama, July 4: Police have started inquiry against the Personal Security Officer (PSO) of MLA Pulwama Muhammad Khalil Bandh, whose weapon was snatched by unidentified persons Wednesday. The policeman is also the brother of the MLA.
Reports said that Assistant Sub-Inspector Abdul Gani Bandh informed the police that his weapon was snatched by somebody while he was escorting the MLA to Srinagar. “We have suspended the policeman and started an inquiry,” a senior police official told Greater Kashmir.
MLA Muhammad Khalil Bandh said, “It is a very unfortunate incident. Police may have started their inquiry.” According to local news gathering agency KNS, Abdul Gani Bandh has been on duty with his legislator brother as personal security officer for the last nine years. He was travelling from Srinagar to Pulwama on Wednesday night when unknown gunmen intercepted his Santro car near Pinglena. After frisking and checking the car, the gunmen snatched the service revolver of the cop and fled from the spot, sources said.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been lodged in the case at Police Station Pulwama under No. 179/2013 under section 341, 392. Police has begun investigations into the case.
