PULWAMA: Three staffers working with primary health centre (PHC) at Tahab on Thursday alleged that they were harassed by the government forces when they were serving their duties during night hours in the intervening night of Wednesday.
Bashir Ahmad, a pharmacist told Kashmir Reader that at about eight in the evening two personnel from Rashtriya Rifles came and said that the officials of PHC were informed to remove a green flag from the Wifi tower installed in the premises.
“The two security personnel left soon after they were assured that they would take up the matter with their immediate officer as the staff was meant for night duty,” he said adding that two personnel left but as soon as they reached the gate of the PHC few more personnel barged inside and yelled upon the staff.
Chief Medical officer told Kashmir Reader that she received a representation in which the staffers expressed inability to serve during night hours due to the reign of terror spread by government forces. “I immediately took up the matter with deputy commissioner Pulwama who directed the additional deputy commissioner to accompany me and take stock of the situation,” she said.
Deputy Commissioner GM Dar told Kashmir Reader that he has got assurance from SSP that such act would not be repeated. SSP Pulwama, Mohamamd Aslam Choudhary said nobody was ready to file a complaint but he got official communication from deputy commissioner and CMO Pulwama. He said that they were going to hold an enquiry.
