Police refute reports of arresting woman during late night hours in Budgam

Srinagar, Dec 27 (KNS): Jammu and Kashmir police on Tuesday refuted social media reports of arresting a lady during late night hours in central Kashmir’s Budgam district. 

In a statement, a spokesperson said a video has surfaced on social media platforms quoting that a lady along with others has been arrested by Police in Budgam during late night hours. 

The statement reads it is clarified that no lady has been arrested by the Police but the fact is that two accused persons identified as Syed Farhat son of Mohammed Hussain Shah of Surasyar Chadoora and Tahir Ahmad Shah son of Mohammad Maqbool Shah of Panzan Chadoora were arrested. 

“It is pertinent to mention that, both the accused were evading their arrest since May 2022 and were not cooperating with Police in Case FIR No. 69/2022 u/s 354, 506, 341 IPC of Police Station Khansahib.”

It reads, however, while arresting them some of the family members resisted and created ruckus on the spot including a lady who was forcibly trying to board police vehicle to avoid the arrest of the accused. 

“Later on, the lady deboarded the vehicle after some locals and relatives persuaded and motivated her. General public is advised not to fall prey to the false information being propagated on social media and avoid sharing such videos without verifying the facts,” it reads. (KNS)
