KL News Network


Police Wednesday resorted to teargas shelling after villagers of Pazalpora village of Bandipora district blocked the road against water scarcity.

Villagers of Pazalpora said that they are without water supply from past several days.

They said that they have never seen local MLA after elections and accused him of betrayal.

“Local MLA came here prior to elections and we voted for him keeping in view his promises but now we regret as no step for our welfare has been taken. He didn’t pay attention towards the constituency as far as development is concerned.”

Eyewitness said that as the protesters continued to block the road, police reached on the spot and tried to pacify the protesters. “However, the protesters continued their protest and did not listen to police. The police after failing to pacify the protesters resorted to baton charge and lobbed teargas shells.”
