Srinagar, May 18: The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday rejected allegations of harassment by family of jailed separatist leader Shabir Shah during a search operation.

Srinagar Police, in a statement, said that the searches in the area were owing to inputs of movement of terrorists and were not related to G20. 

"There are tweets by daughter of separatist Shabir Shah claiming harassment during search operation. It is clarified that it was search of 20 houses, when inputs of movement of terrorists in this locality came. This has nothing to do with G-20 but is routine in case of inputs, " the statement said. 

It said that no harassment or harm whatsoever was caused during this search & all SOPs were followed. 

"The lady is strangely linking this with G-20, more strange is an ex CM linking this too with event, when she herself was privy to such search in particular locality due to terrorist sighting, " the police said. 

It said that the search team was having three DySPs, four lady officials & others.

"Such attempts of forwarding malicious agenda of attributing routine security measures to an event by family of a separatist undergoing Jail in a terror funding case shows sheer frustration of some vested interests, " it said. 

Earlier, Sehar Shah, daughter of incarcerated Shabir Shah, had alleged harrasment by forces during the search operation. "If this was because of G20 this is the highest level of harassment we faced today, " she said in a series of tweets.
