Banihal: Two Personal Security Officers (PSOs) of a BJP leader were arrested for allegedly thrashing a youth in the Banihal area in Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said today.
BJP MLC Sofi Yusuf was on way to Srinagar from Jammu when two of his PSOs allegedly beat up Amir Saleem, resident of Hollan Banihal, last night following an altercation, police officials said.
