Police on Sunday denied the reports alleging that they vandalized property and beat up women during a nocturnal raid in Sozeith village of central Kashmir's Budgam district.

A spokesman said that police arrested 12 "wanted stone-pelters/trouble mongers" last night in the village.

"…during this some miscreants pelted stones on the police party. A mild force was used to chase them away." 

"It is further clarified that allegations of beating of women/ damaging of property during the raid is baseless and far from the truth. As such news report circulated on news portals and social networking sites is rebutted," added the spokesman.
