Jammu and Kashmir DGP S. P. Vaid on Friday lauded the restraint shown by the CRPF men who were heckled by some youths in Budgham on Sunday, saying “any armed force in the world would have retaliated with force“.
The police has registered an FIR on a complaint filed by the CRPF over a video clip showing some youths beating the CRPF personnel during by-poll to the Srinagar parliamentary constituency on April 9.
“We have registered an FIR in police station Chadoora against the ruffians who heckled the CRPF personnel. They will be dealt with as per law,” DGP Vaid said.
The DGP lauded the “restraint and patience” shown by the CRPF jawans in the face of heckling and grave “provocation by the miscreants.”
“I admire the patience of the CRPF personnel … any armed force in the world would have retaliated with force. It would have led to death of those ruffians,” he noted.
A video about the heckling of CRPF personnel who were on poll duty in Chadoora area of the district on April 9, when by-polls for the Srinagar Parliamentary seat were held, went viral on social media, leading to uproar across the country.
The DGP said an FIR has also been lodged in case of another video which showed a security force personnel shooting directly in the head of a stone-pelting protester outside a polling station in same area. “A case has been registered in connection with that incident also. It is a matter of investigation and action will be taken against whoever is found guilty,” the DGP added.
Another video in which a youth was tied to an army jeep as a human shield against stone pelting has gone viral on social media in the state, leading to an outrage with former chief minister Omar Abdullah terming it as “shocking“.
The video was reportedly shot in Beerwah area of Budgam district where miscreants disrupted polling during Sunday’s by-poll to Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency.
