Srinagar: An FIR has been lodged against BJP leader and District Development Council (DDC) Srinagar member Aijaz Hussain Rather for alleged wrongful restraint and voluntarily causing hurt after two persons registered a complaint against him, police said on Wednesday. 

The police lodged the FIR on Tuesday after a complaint by Nazim Hussain Bhat and Imdad Ali Mir.

“On the basis of a complaint lodged by Nazim Hussain Bhat & Imdad Ali Mir, FIR no 51/2023 u/s 323,341 of IPC dated 30.05.2023 registered in Panthachowk PS against DDC member Aijaz Hussain Rather on offences of wrongful restraint & voluntarily causing hurt,” the Srinagar Police said on Twitter.

Rather is the Member of Hajj Committee of India, and the former national vice-president of the party’s youth wing Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM). 

He won the DDC elections from Srinagar’s Khonmoh seat – one of the three seats the party managed from the Kashmir Valley – in 2020. 

Srinagar Mayor, Junaid Azim Mattu, had alleged Rather had assaulted a civilian from Balhama area of the city. 

“A reign of TERROR has been unleashed on people of Balhama, Srinagar by the incumbent DDC Member belonging to @BJP4India! This is the second assault on a civilian by him in less than a month! Even WOMEN are being assaulted now — under FULL security cover,” Mattu alleged in a tweet.
