Demands action against erring officer, soldiers
Srinagar, April 17: While strongly condemning the alleged assault on sub-divisional-magistrate (SDM) Doour, Ghulam Rasool Wani by an Army officer in Ujroo area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Monday, CPI (M) leader Mohamad Yousuf today demanded a through probe and strict action against the erring officer.
There are reports that the SDM along with his staff members were assaulted by some army men and their mobile phones and official vehicle damaged. Assault on an SDM is unfortunate, shameful and action must be taken against the erring officer. The army on its part must also initiate proceedings against the guilty officer and punish him. Such an unruly behaviour is not acceptable in a democratic setup.
