Srinagar: A pregnant woman has alleged that she was thrashed by the officials of the Municipal Committee Baramulla after she lodged a complaint against them at the Chief Minister’s grievance cell. The woman alleged that she lodged the complaint after the officials failed to provide her an ‘aadhar’ card.
Tasleema Siraj of Qazi Hamam Baramulla emerged at the ‘Press Enclave’ here in Srinagar on Thursday demanding action under law against the four employees of Municipal Council Baramulla, who according to her thrashed her mercilessly as a result she was admitted in District Hospital Baramulla.
“From past two years I have been wandering from pillar to post to get an ‘Aadhar Card’. Despite completing all the formalities, I didn’t get the card. Accordingly I filed a complaint before CM Grievance Cell vide order number75626. On the directions of Additional District Development Commissioner Baramulla, the ‘Aadhar’ card section incharge Ishtiyaq Ahmed called me to his office,” she told a local news gathering agency.
“As I reached Municipal Council Baramulla, the four employees including two operators Basharat Makno, Irshad Ahmed, Fayaz Ahmed and Muhammad Saleem first showered choicest invectives on me for approaching the Chief Ministers Grievance Cell and they started pushing and hitting me. They continuously abused and slapped me,” Tasleema said adding that she regained her conscious only at District Hospital Baramulla.
She said if approaching the CM’s Grievance Cell is a crime then it is better for the government to shut this office down.
“I want justice and action against those employees who acted as goons. I can identify them all,” she said.
Meanwhile, a police official said that they have taken cognizance of the incident and assailants will face the music. (CNS)
