SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Bank branch Achabal in Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district has prohibited the entry of people with Pherans citing security reasons, even as branch head denied issuing any such order.
In a circular, which has gone viral on social media platforms, the bank branch has asked people with pherans not to enter the bank premises.
“Persons with Pheran are not allowed to enter inside the office/hall. For security reasons,” it reads.
Meanwhile, news agency KNO quoted branch head Anayat Ahmad as having said there was no such order from the bank unit.
“The poster that has gone viral seems to have been pasted by some miscreants and it has nothing to do with the bank circular,” he said.
He added for security reasons there is already a circular that no body is allowed to enter inside the hall.
