Jammu: Four people were arrested for allegedly attempting to occupy the house of a Kashmiri migrant woman in Jammu, police said today.

A gang of five to six people came in a vehicle and forced their entry into the house of Tosha Zutshi in the Durga Nagar area last evening, they said.

They threatened Zutshi and her bed-ridden father-in-Law to move out of the house and staked claim over it, police said.

As the woman cried for help, people of the colony and neighbours gathered and forced the trespassers to move out of the house and called the police.

Four among them were arrested, police said.

Following the incident, over 300 Kashmiri migrants and locals of the area held a protest demonstration at the police station. They alleged that the people were goons and part of a land mafia and demanded protection for the family. PTI
