Srinagar: MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed Tuesday condemned police for booking 27 persons of Nutnussa, Baramulla, for seeking the dead body of a slain militant.
In a statement issued, Rasheed asked police to introspect and find answer “while cops were celebrating death of two militants, why thousands of people were mourning their death from Sopore to Kupwara”.
He said “It is shameful that while the village elders visited Baramulla at the directions of Sopore Police, they were booked under various sections by the Police. Police should know that their atrocities and state terrorism contributes in taking people radical stands and chances of reconciliation over minor issues get vanished.”
Rasheed asked government to release the 27 innocents without any excuses or be ready to face the public anger especially in Kupwara.
