KL Report

Srinagar

In a move that took people by surprise, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Thursday removed one of its oldest bunkers at Eidgah Srinagar. However, CRPF vehicles couldn’t ferry the materials and belongings till late in the evening from the area due to heavy stone pelting in adjacent localities.

“CRPF removed two bunkers situated in Eidgah area. Bunker was set up in 1990’s. It was first occupied by Army, then BSF and subsequently by CRPF. They (CRPF) began to dismantle it since Thursday morning”, eye witnesses told a local news agency, KNS.

They said that stone pelters had attacked the bunker several times. “CRPF vehicles loaded with bunker belongings couldn’t move till late evening under a threat of stone pelting”, they added.

When contacted, Inspector General of CRPF Y S Yadav said that he had not issued any orders for removal of the bunker. “It is a routine to remove or dismantle a bunker after assessing the security situation. However, I cannot comment over the issue at this moment as I’ve not issued any such order”, Yadav told KNS.

Pertinently, a father of three minor daughters, Altaf Ahmad Wani was killed when CRPF allegedly opened unprovoked gun fire in Zoonimar Saidapora on Wednesday.

National Conference has termed it as a ‘cold blooded murder’.
