CBI Officer Accuses Police of Harassment



Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Monday accused police of manhandling and abusing one of its top officers in Srinagar on Sunday evening.

An official from CBI told CNS that a couple of police constables from police station Pantachowk not only tried to manhandle DySP SK Sharma but also hurled choices invectives on him.

“Our vehicle BL10-CS-5965 was caught in a traffic jam on Sunday evening near Pantachowk crossing. Two to three police constables, who were ‘hitting’ all the stranded vehicles with lathis to pave way for some VIP, also hit our vehicle. When our DySP objected their action, they tried to drag him out from the vehicle and one of them hurled choicest abuses upon him. We were aghast and our heads went down with shame after seeing our officer being humiliated,” said an employee of CBI who according to him was present in the vehicle during the time of incident.

DySP Sharma said that he faced a lot of humiliation. “I failed to understand why these policemen damage vehicles without any provocation. Their behaviour was unacceptable as they treat people as cattle in Kashmir,” he said.

When contacted a top police official said that he would look into the matter. “It has not come to my knowledge and I don’t know whether this incident has really occurred or not, still I will find out,” he said.
