Mendhar, Feb 5:
A constable was arrested by the police who turned into a peer baba and had been tricking innocent people in Mendhar and Sakhi Maidan area.
The action was taken following public complaints regarding sexual exploitation and misleading people with his allegedly supernatural activities. A police team led by SHO Mendhar Anzir Mir arrested him yesterday from his rented room at Sakhi Maidan.
The accused was identified as Mohd Jameel, son of Mohd Maqbool, resident of Behrote in Thannamandi (Rajouri), who used to call himself Peer Baba and attracted a number of people with his tricks.
As per the police reports, a case was registered against the accused and he was dismissed from the service few years ago so he formed this easy way to lure innocent people.Later his family had lodged a missing report because he had left his home without informing anyone, though the reports tell that he was secretly in contact with his wife, who is presently living in Manjakote area. The police seized three mobile phones alongwith 8 SIMs from his possession.
