According to the reports, around 50 elders from the ancestral village of Salahuddin in central Kashmir met Deputy Commissioner (DC) and Superintendent of Police (SP) Budgam to convey their concerns over the harassment of Salahuddin’s family.

The elders reportedly told the officials the family has been peacefully living with them since they have known one another.

The family and the residents of Soibugh village, according to the source, threatened to court arrest if the “harassment” was not immediately stopped.

“We will court arrest and the responsibility of any untoward happening will lie with the state government,” a Soibugh resident said.
