SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday condemned the beating of a family in Bomai, Sopore by army on Tuesday. He also rejected the filing of case against army saying the record of J&K Police “has always been doubtful”.
Police on Tuesday filed a case against army for manhandling four female members of a family in Bomai, Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

In a statement issued here, Geelani expressed solidarity with the families of Bomai and Begum Bagh Kakpora and said the role of police and its track record in past has “always been doubtful in such incidents”.
“Till now, not a single culprit has been brought to book and it is an attempt to cool down people’s resentment and hush up the case,” Geelani said, adding that forces have been deployed to create ‘90s like situation.
The Hurriyat (G) chairman said, “Forces enjoy backing of their masters and as such are harassing and intimidating civilians. They are following the Doval Doctrine and are accountable to none.”
Geelani said there will be “no truth” in the police version as “they are equally responsible for the incident and their main aim is to hush up such cases”.
