Srinagar: Police on Wednesday urged landlords in Srinagar to get tenant verification done before renting out their properties in view of yesterday’s sexual assault on a minor girl by three youth from north Kashmir’s Baramulla who had been staying on rent here.

A spokesman of Srinagar Police while asking the residents to register the tenants warned of legal action against those who fail to do so.

“In view of yesterday’s kidnapping and sexual assault case, all are requested again to get tenant verification done. Here three criminal minded persons from Rafiabad, Sopore were staying on rent in Malbagh area and landlord didn’t do any tenant verification. He will also face legal action,” said the police spokesman.

Three persons including a juvenile were on Tuesday arrested by police for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a minor girl in Malbagh area of Soura in Srinagar district.
