Father of a National Conference Councilor from Khanyar Constituency here in Srinagar city was allegedly thrashed by a group of policemen near Martyrs Graveyard on Thursday morning, NC leader Ali Mohammad Sagar alleged.
The victim identified as Ghulam Hasan Hashi has been admitted in SMHS Hospital Srinagar.
Divulging the details, National Conference General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said that the victim is a driver by profession who was ruthlessly assaulted by cops near Martyrs Graveyard at Khawja Bazar Srinagar.
“The policemen including two officers not only thrashed the old man to pulp but also damaged his eye. Hospital authorities have informed me that he may lose the sight of damaged eye,” Sagar said.
Sagar said that the fault of this elderly man was that he happened to pass through a street during restrictions imposed by the government forces.
“I talked to SSP Srinagar and SP North City and urged them to stop their hooliganism. I am shocked the way some policemen are taking law into their hands and treat people like cattle,” Sagar said.
