Police Flouts Court Orders, Stops MLA From Visiting Poonch


Srinagar: Not entertaining third consecutive order of State High Court, asking police to allow Er. Rasheed’s free movement in Jammu province, police again barred AIP Supremo and MLA from visiting Pir Panchal region.

As scheduled Er. Rasheed today left for three day visit to Rajouri and Poonch, but was intercepted by a heavy contingent of police at Pir Ki Gali.

Police had laid barricades to prevent firebrand MLA from traveling ahead. Later he was forced to travel back towards Shopian.

Reacting sharply to police ‘highhandedness’, AIP spokesman Inam-u-Nabi said  in a statement that Er. Rasheed is being barred from speaking truth.

Spokesman said “Disrespecting court orders itself proves that police was afraid of none, as it seems to have been taken over by RSS and other radical elements. The right wing forces have hijacked the state administration and in fulfilling the designs of Sang Parivar the police administration seems to have lost conscience and morality. It is obvious that police is working like OGW’s of Sang Parivar and the state has been rendered to a lawless place, where rights of people and their civil liberties do hardly matter”.

Spokesman added in a statement issued to PTK that even local print and electronic media has also been asked not to expose the police and bureaucratic terrorism in Jammu province but reiterated that party will continue to fight for the rights of people and against state terrorism. (PTK)
