During a National Conference convention at Badamwari Srinagar, the security guards of incumbent party MLA from Zadibal allegedly thrashed party halka president from Zoonimar.
Sources told CNS that party had organized a convention in the house of a party worker who had unsuccessfully contested the Assembly elections in 2008 on Samta party ticket. Sources added that majority of the party workers were not informed about the convention while scores of party workers led by Naziruddin Baba stormed into the room and complained before the General Secretary and provincial president of the party that they were intentionally not informed about the event.
Halka president of the party from Zoonimar Srinagar Fayaz Ahmed Dar told CNS that as they started raising slogans against MLA Zadibal, his security guards pounced upon him and thrashed him mercilessly. “They torn my shirt and hit my body with gun butts. SHO Zadibal save me from their wrath,” he alleged.
He added that one of the business partners and close aide of incumbent MLA manhandled another party leader Naziruddin Baba while Rural Development Minister resented his action and assured all the party workers that party will consult everyone before awarding mandate to anybody for the Zadibal Constituency.
Despite repeated attempts, MLA Zadibal Pir Afaq could not be contacted.
