Srinagar, April 17: While strongly condemning the alleged manhandling of sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) Dooru Ghulam Rasool Wani, District Congress Committee (DCC) Srinagar President Irfan Naqib today demanded stern action against the erring security forces personnel.
The manhandling of a magistrate on duty is unfortunate and the government must conduct an immediate enquiry against the responsible army officer.
“Not only the civilian authorities, but the army too must not take this incident lightly as its officer’s action tantamount to indiscipline and hooliganism. The officer must be punished according to law so that such incidents are not repeated in future,” Irfan Naqib demanded.
He said that Congress stands for the civil liberties of people and reiterated that the ban on civilian traffic on Srinagar-Jammu national highway for two days a week is curtailing the liberties of people of the state.
