Forces manhandle judge in Held Kashmir.
According to a local newspaper in Srinagar, IHK High Court magistrate MA Al Nasir was confronted by the Central Reserve Police Forces (CRPF) in the city's outskirts.
"Around 50 yards from my residence, they (CRPF personnel) pounced on my vehicle. And without any provocation, they started hitting my vehicle," the magistrate told the daily Greater Kashmir.
When security officer Gulzar Ahmed tried to intervene, pleading that he too was a policeman, they (forces) started beating him. They hit the vehicle's front windscreen until the glass broke into tiny crystal pieces. As the security forces' personnel were trying to force the magistrate out of the car, the driver managed to speed away from the attackers.
Narrow escape: "It was a narrow escape because I was on the rear seat... Had we gotten into a confrontation, they (CRPF men) would have shot us," Nasir said. The livid magistrate told reporters that the CRPF was attacking civilian, thereby undermining its presence in IHK. Ironically, police later declined to register a first information report (FIR) against the CRPF, saying they had no knowledge of the force's movement in the area where the incident was alleged to have taken place.
