Srinagar: Police on Thursday claimed to have arrested twenty youth involved in ruckus at a tourism department-organised musical event in Badamwari area of the city on Sunday.
According to a police spokesperson, a group of miscreants created ruckus on the stage when the demand of a song from a boy among the audience was not fulfilled immediately by the performing artists. He said that the musical event witnessed huge gathering of people including very large number of women and children.
Police, he said used maximum restraint to restore order as the use of any kind of force would have created a stampede like situation at the venue.
He further said that a case FIR No 11/2021 was registered at the police station Rainawari and during investigation involvement of 20 miscreants was established, who were identified through different videos of the event and the miscreants have been arrested.
“The investigation of the case is underway,” the police spokesperson said.
