Elderly person among three arrested in Hajin
Hajin, Mar 04: Three persons, including an elderly man, were arrested in Hajin area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district during nocturnal raids by the government forces.
Those arrested were identified as Mohammad Umar Dar, Gowhar Ahmad Parray and Sonaullah Bhat (75).
Locals alleged that forces conducted arrests in reaction to protests that followed after twin militant killings in Hajin last week.
The family members of Bhat said they were surprised over his arrest.
“He (Bhat) suffers some ailments, and remains usually ill. He was detained unnecessarily,” said Mohammad Afzal, his son.
Police official from Hajin police station feigned ignorance about the arrests.
