A curfew was announced in the Bhaderwah area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district on Thursday. This is after the violent protests which led to the murder of a 40-year-old villager, Nayeem Shah by unknown persons.
“Nayeem was killed and another person received splinter injuries in the firing,” said Jammu zone IGP MK Sinha. The access of mobile internet services has been discontinued for the precautionary measure.
“A curfew has been imposed in entire Bhaderwah area and paramilitary personnel besides policemen have been deployed in strength,” said Doda deputy commissioner DS Dattatray.
“Facts are not clear yet. The deceased was not a victim of cow vigilantism. Nothing of this sort has come to the fore as of now. This man probably was involved in bovine smuggling earlier but facts are not clear,” said the deputy commissioner. He added, “there were minor incidents of stone pelting here and there”.
A case has been filed and further investigations are on. “The body has been sent for postmortem and would be handed over to the family after completion of the medico-legal formalities,” he said.
As per the reports, soon after the incident, the family of the Nayeem attacked the Bhaderwah police station and destroyed several vehicles including a three-wheeler.Share this to your,
