Two Special Police Officers (SPOs) have publicly resigned from their jobs in Sopore town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district. However, police has denied any such development.

Under ‘public pressure’ a Jammu and Kashmir policeman publicly announced his resignation in Apple Town Sopore of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, reported the CNS news agency.

The incident occurred at Behrampora village of the town on Monday evening.

Locals said that two Special Police Officers (SPOs) of Special Operations Group, Firdous Ahmed and Waseem Ahmed Sheikh, told the locals that they want to resign from the Police Department publicly.

“On Monday evening, Waseem Ahmed (driver) a resident of Behrampora posted at SDPO office Rafiabad Sopore publicly resigned while another cop Firdous Ahmed, a resident of Thakgund Sopore, though didn’t emerge in the village send a word that he too will resign from the job,” said an eyewitness.

Locals said that shortly after the killing of a local Hurriyat activist Fayaz Ahmed Rather on 29 July last month at the hands of “unknown” gunmen, people had asked local policemen to resign from the department.

“Both the cops on Monday evening announced their resignations. But so far, only Waseem Ahmed made a public announcement in this regard while Firdous Ahmed has promised to do so,” said locals.

A police official, however, said that “nobody has tendered his resignation”.

“I don’t know what you mean by saying resigning publicly. There is a procedure and so far no cop has tendered his resignation,” he said.
