Srinagar, Dec 18: Police have registered a case against duo after some Power Development Department officials accused them of manhandling.
An official from PDD said that on 15 December, an inspection team headed by the Junior Engineers of Sub Division Chanapora in Srinagar outskirts was attacked by the ‘miscreants’ at Khan Colony after the team had received numerous complaints regarding power theft and low voltage issues via social media.
The official claimed that the team was manhandled and abused by the ‘miscreants’ who were actively involved in power theft by means of directly tapping to the LT service lines which are in close proximity to their residence.
“The team took photographs as well as videos of the entire process, but the father son duo attacked the team and used foul languages. The person who claimed to be a high court advocate snatched JE’s phone, slapped him hard and formatted the entire phone so that the photographic and video-graphic evidences could be destroyed,” the official said adding a complaint has been registered at police post Chanapora.
When contacted a police official told KNT that a formal FIR has been lodged against two persons. “The accused have been released on bail and investigation is underway,” he said.
