ADC Baramulla thrashs people, video goes viral; netizens term it as ‘bureaucratic hooliganism’

- Advertisment -

In a video, ADC Baramulla is seen thrashing and beating people in Baramulla town on the ruse of implementation of strict lockdown.

The video has gone viral on social media today.

Locals and netizens are aghast with the behavior of the senior civic officer seen beating men, women and anyone with a stick in his hand.

Locals have demanded the Lt Governor administration to take such official to task for thrashing and beating people and humiliating them.

“People are not allowed to go for shopping when a strict lockdown has been in place for the last ten days. People have emergencies like going to a clinic or hospital or to buy medicine for patients. But ADC Baramulla has crossed all the limits of a civic and sensible officer by thrashing all and sundry in the town,” Faheem ul Haq, a local from Baramulla told KDC.

Mohit Bhan, PDP spokesman, demanded suspension of the officer.

“This hooliganism on the streets of Baramulla is happening today under the grab of lockdown. This physcopath needs to be booked & suspended. Abusing , beating people , hitting cars , scaring single women along with administrative “Goons” is Naya Kashmir,” he wrote on Twitter.

BJP leader Sheikh Khalid Jehangir wrote on his twitter that ” Law enforcement agencies can’t behave like GOONS. With Authority there is Responsibility. Strict action should be taken against him for violating Human Rights . He can’t beat people. @OfficeOfLGJandK shri @manojsinha_ji.”

When asked about the video in which he is seen thrashing people. ADC Baramulla Muhammad Ahsan told the local news agency KDC: “The administration is trying to strictly implement a lockdown in the district as serious violations by people were seen in the last two days. The thrashing of lockdown violators is not deliberate or with any malafide intention. We urge people to not violate lockdown guidelines and don’t more outside homes unless emergencies.”

Meanwhile, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir P K Pole on Wednesday said that he will look into the matter as to in which context Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Baramulla resorted to beating people to enforce Corona-Curfew.

“We will see in which context he (ADC Baramulla) has done it (thrashed people),” Pole told reporters as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer.
