Suspected militants looted four rifles from the official residence of Congress MLC Muzaffar Parray in Srinagar. The weapons belonged to the PSO of the legislator. Police sources told The Indian Express Sunday that the MLC was not present at the residence as he is out of Valley since November 18.
A senior police officer said that only one PSO was present at the residence when three men came and took the weapons. Till Sunday evening, J&K Police hadn’t issued any official release on this.
ADGP Law and Order and Security, Munir Ahmad Khan, however confirmed the incident and said the police personnel are being questioned. “In this case, SOPs have been violated,” he said.
Police sources said the security wing of J&K Police has suspended three personnel.
“This is a shocking incident. It is the government’s job to check the background of people deputed for security,” Parray said.
