Srinagar: In a bizarre accident of its kind, two security guards of a Minister beat up a Traffic Police Sub Inspector after he objected to their act of breaking traffic signal.
Eyewitness said that the escort of PHE minster and Congress leader Taj Mohidin was heading towards the Chief Minister’s residence when the traffic police officer was assaulted by his security guards
“As soon as the cavalcade reached at the traffic signal at Tourist Reception Center (TRC), the traffic signal was indicating red, but minister’s cavalcade drove straight. The Sub inspector objected for breaking rule. The security guards came down from vehicle and beat him mercilessly,” an eyewitness said.
The incident has infuriated the locals who called the incident as a show of muscle power, “It is unfortunate that law makers are becoming law breakers. It is sheer hooliganism,” A local Mushtaq Ahmed said.
The Sub Inspector has been identified as Mohan Lal who was later hospitalized.
Taking to a local media outlet, Deputy Inspector General Traffic, Shafqat Watali said that they are not going to spare law breakers, “We are not going to spare them. They have assaulted our officer and they will face the music.”
