The KAS officers’ association has strongly condemned the “manhandling” of Sub Divisional Magistrate Dooru and his subordinates allegedly by the security forces, while the officer was performing his official duties in connection with parliamentary elections.
Locals news agency KNS quoted the association as saying that it has taken up the issue with higher authorities for lodging an FIR in the matter and for getting it investigated on fast track basis so that the guilty are punished under law.
The association, it said, has apprised the higher authorities of the “negative fallout of the incident” as the same has downed the morale of the entire KAS fraternity, which is working under the “toughest circumstances” not only to conduct the ensuing parliamentary elections but to implement the policies and programmes of the government in the state.
While exuding its unflinching faith in the Government, the association, according to the KNS, has hoped that the matter will be taken to its logical conclusion, in keeping with the genuine aspirations of the KAS fraternity.
The association has however maintained that in case FIR is not lodged in the matter, the KAS fraternity shall resort to “other forceful measures to ensure that such unfortunate incidents don’t happen in future”.
