Police shift parents of “wanted” boys to Kothibagh police station
Political workers and informers are misleading police for own interests: locals
ASEM MOHIUDDIN

SRINAGAR, Nov 30: Police shifted parents of boys allegedly wanted in stone pelting and other related incidents to Kothi Bagh police station. The parents have been asked by the police to handover the youth prior to their release.

However, the police are yet to confirm the detention of parents officially.

“Before commenting over the issue I have to check whether the parents have been arrested by police or not,” IGP (Kashmir) S M Sahai told Kashmir Times.

According to the relatives of arrested persons, the police during the nocturnal raid on Monday night arrested five parents after failing to round up their sons allegedly involved in stone pelting.

The police team led by Station House Officer (SHO), Nowhatta, according to sources, arrested twenty youth and five parents during the nocturnal raid.

However, the locals accused that police rounded up youth for false information being provided by their sources.

“There are dozens of youth and political workers in area providing wrong information to police to remain in their good books. Whosoever participated in protests in 2008 and 2010 are wanted now for police although most of them have to mend their ways and are living normal life,” said the locals, wishing not to be named.

“Since these persons working as source for police don’t have any new information, they are misleading them after providing wrong information,” he added.

The relatives of the detained persons said that they were not allowed to meet them after being shifted to Kothibagh polcie station.

“First they denied that any such persons are lodged in the jail but after insistence, they later confirmed the detentions. However, no food and garments were allowed inside for them,” the relatives accused.

They said the elderly persons lodged in the jail are suffering from various ailments and continuous detention in shivering climate would deteriorate their health conditions.

“We request authorities to allow us to meet our parents so that we can provide them some food and clothes. In the chilly conditions it is very difficult for them to sustain on blankets being provided by police. The food would also have negative impact on their health due to their age factor,” the relatives urged.

The locals said that police detained Ghulam Qadir Sheikh (65), Mohammad Hussain (63), Fayaz Ahmad Zargar and Ghulam Ahamd Sofi.

The police have refused to release the detained persons even after intervention of Nowhatta Traders Federation, Jamia Masjid Traders Federation and other various respectable citizens of the area.

“We approached the police and sought the release of the elderly people but police refused and asked us to handover the absconding boys, wanted allegedly in various anti-social activities. So we returned without any breakthrough,” said one of the members of Nowhatta Traders Union.

He accused the police of taking the entire area hostage for their own failure.

“When police is not able to arrest the youth how is it possible for us. They take the entire society hostage for their own incompetence,” he said.
