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.

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.”

ADC Baramulla Muhammad Hasan told media,

“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”
