A cordon-and-search operation on the outskirts of Srinagar on Wednesday triggered a fight between two police officers. The fist fight between Ganderbal SP Imtiyaz Ismail Parray — an IPS officer — and DSP Farooq Ahmad Zargar was unprecedented in the state, said officials.

According to sources, policemen from J&K Police’s counter insurgency unit cordoned off Khimber area on the outskirts of Srinagar on specific information about the presence of militants.

Sources said DSP Zargar had generated the intelligence input about the presence of the militants, but he had not informed SP Parray — Khimber falls in Ganderbal district headed by Parray. Zargar is posted at J&K Police’s special counter insurgency unit, known as ‘Cargo’.

“As per procedure, the counter insurgency officials have to inform the concerned district police about the launch of the operation,” said a police officer. “Even if they don’t give the details, the information about the operation is always shared,” he said. A senior police officer said while breach of jurisdiction in such operations is common, this is the first time it has resulted in a scuffle between police officers.
