Five policemen injured as soldiers 'thrash' cops in J&K’s Kupwara: Sources

Five policemen injured as soldiers 'thrash' cops in J&K’s Kupwara: Sources

Srinagar, May 29 (UNI) At least five policemen, including an officer, were injured after soldiers allegedly barged into the police station in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district and "beat up" the cops, official sources said on Wednesday.


However, Srinagar based defence spokesman termed the altercation and beating up of police personnel as “misfounded and incorrect.”
“Reports of an altercation between police and army personnel and beating up therein of police personnel are misfounded and incorrect. Minor differences between the police personnel and a territorial army unit on an operational matter have been amicably resolved,” the spokesman said.

The police has not issued any statement on the incident so far.

Sources said the incident took place last night after a team of Police Station Kupwara during investigation of a case raided the house of a Territorial Army jawan at Batapora Kupwara.


They said after the police team returned from the village, a team of soldiers from the unit of Territorial Army in the middle of the night barged into the police station and beat up the cops including the Station House Officer.

“Five cops including an officer were injured in the incident,” the sources said, adding four cops were shifted to Srinagar for treatment.

The four injured cops were identified as Rayees Khan, Imtiyaz Malik (both special police officers) Constables Saleem Mushtaq, and Zahoor Ahmad.

They said the condition of all the injured is stated to be stable.

The sources said that a policeman was taken by the army and set free after 3 am.
