Srinagar | Dec 08 (PTK): AIP Supremo & MLA Langate Er Rashid has accused Jammu & Kashmir Police of being after his life and said that if anything untoward happens to him or any member of his family J&K Police should be held directly responsible for the same.
Addressing an overcrowded press conference in Srinagar today, Er Rashid narrated the horrible incidents he has been facing since last one year at the hands of Jammu & Kashmir Police. Er Rashid said “ Not only that just after filing nomination papers in 2014 assembly elections, security agencies tried to carry out suicide attack on me but after being elected, a section of police officers left no stone unturned to harm, pressurise and humiliate me. The murderous attacks at Bhamla and Bhaderwah under the supervision of local police officers are in memory of everyone.
It is irony that while I was booked at Pulwama for some argument with a BJP worker, Police has informed High Court that it is yet to identify the culprits involved in the attacks on me, despite the facts that not only video evidences are available but a couple of right wing fanatic organisations have claimed responsibility at the site of the attack in presence of police officers. However, when my movement was restricted to the extreme extent, the Hon’ble High Court was pleased to direct the State government to allow and ensure my free movement. However, Police treating itself above the law, stopped me at Patnitop on my return from Jammu on 2nd December.
There can be nothing shameful than the fact that the senior police officers stopped me at Patnitop and introduced a group of 10-12 civilians requesting me that they want to interact and serve me with a cup of tea. They put a garland round my neck and I had no option but to accept the invitation. I was surprised when they accompanied me and then took me to Police Station and after tracing their identity they were all police cops in civvies and were belonging to Hindu community.
However, after I was allowed to move but later in the evening under a well-crafted plan attacked by police at Khannabal and murderous assault was carried out on me. Er. Rasheed added that after police authorities failed to take any concrete action against the goons in uniform he filed a complaint before the CJM Anantnag, who has taken the cognizance of the seriousness of the matter and have also brought a privilege motion against DIG South, SSP Anantnag and others.
Er. Rasheed added undoubtedly there are very good and saner elements in police also but their pro people behavior gets over shadowed by the notorious elements. Er. Rasheed further added that party will carry out a peaceful rally in Srinagar on eve of Human Rights Day from Sher-I-Kashmir Park to State Human Rights Commission, to draw attention towards the grave human rights abuses against Kashmiris.
