The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legislator Aijaz Mir on Thursday alleged harassment at the hands of the police during questioning into weapons loot by his Personal Security Officer from his official residence in Jawahar Nagar Srinagar.
Taking to social networking site Facebook, Aijaz Mir wrote: “Is this a policing? How can a Munshi (policeman), of Rajbagh police station, abuse a legislator in front of dozens of other policemen? And then went on levelling serious allegations, accusations against his family as well. Is this how Police probes things here by humiliating even legislators and start levelling baseless allegations? (sic).”
The police have constituted a Special Investigation Team with the superintendent of police South Srinagar as its head to investigate the looting of seven rifles and a licensed pistol of the legislator.
