SRINAGAR

:

J&K Police booked three “miscreants” and arrested two of them for raising pro-Azadi slogans during a Muharram procession in the outskirts of Srinagar. The third accused was yet to be apprehended till the filing of this report.
Cops took cognizance after a video of the unlawful act went viral on social media, in which “mourners” at the Jaloos-e-Aza (Muharram Procession) at Hokersar Nowpora Bund, about 2.5km from Baramulla road, were seen chanting anti-India slogans, Srinagar SSP Haseeb Mughal said.
“The area is isolated and there was no history of organising any such unlawful gathering before. Neither was there any input about a procession nor police presence, as the area is far from the main Imambara,” the SSP said.
The accused were identified as Sajad Hussain Parray, Arif Ahmad Dar and Raja Mehboob of Gund Hassi Bhat locality. The trio took advantage of the area and assembled there to raise pro-Azadi slogans, according to the police statement. A case was registered in the connection under relevant sections of the IPC and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, SSP Mughal added.
