Police Tuesday registered an attempt to murder case against a youth in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district for allegedly assaulting a cop.
Official sources said that Monday afternoon, students and other civilians took out a peaceful protest demonstration against ongoing Israeli aggression in Gaza.
In the meantime, a police officer allegedly thrashed a youth in front of public during protests near the Murran Chowk; the youth in retaliation “pounced” upon the officer identified as Sub-Inspector Mudasir Ahmad and thrashed him.
Later, scores of people staged the protest against the police official blaming him for creating the trouble in the area.
Meanwhile, a police official said that the youth Muzamil Ahmad Malik attacked the cop while he was maintaining law and order in the district.
“A case under FIR no. 135/ 2014 under section 307, 148 and 332 RPC was registered against the youth for attacking the officer”, the official said, adding that the action will be taken as per the law. However, the family of the Muzamil while denying the allegations said that Police is implicating him in a false case.
“The sections which have been registered against him are fabricated as the full public is the eyewitness of the fact whether our Muzamil beat a police officer or he has been beaten to pulp”, one of the relatives of Muzamil wishing anonymity said. (GNS)
