The joint action committee of Engineering Graduate Association’s (Civil & Mechanical) has expressed deep shock over the incident faced by the Electrical fraternity member namely Er Nasir Ismail (AE ) at south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
According to the statement, the official who was attending essential Service duty of COVID-19 with valid movement pass issued by District Administration Antanang was allegedly “harassed, beaten and imprisoned by the police officials”.
In a joint statement, Er Farooq Ahamed and Er Firdous Ahad have expressed deep concern and asked the Administration to investigate the issue on priority and the said police officer should be punished for such misbehaviour and ill-treatment to a Gazzated Engineer.
Meanwhile, they apprised that Engineers being COVID-19 warriors and always on toes for supply and restoration of essential services like water, electricity and hospital services are being ill-treated, which is unacceptable and instructions should be issued to forces for not repeating in future.
They extended full support to JKEEGA and demanded immediate action against the cop or otherwise fraternity can go on mass strike.
Meanwhile, the J&K Electrical Engineering Graduates Association on Friday also demanded action with 40 hours against a police officer who allegedly beat up an Assistant Engineer Nasir Ismail in Anantnag district despite having a valid pass on Thursday. In case the action was not taken, the association threatened to suspend work among other ‘tough measures’.
In a statement, the association expressed anguish over the incident which happened at Sarnal point Anantnag on Thursday.
The Association said that it fails to understand whether the sub-inspector is having so much of an authority to disregard the movement pass issued by concerned District Magistrate.
“The said sub-inspector has also misbehaved with the concerned Executive Engineer who has reached the spot after this incident.”
The association has also written a letter in this regard to the divisional commissioner Kashmir.
