Bengaluru police have issued a notice to companies seeking details of people from Jammu and Kashmir.
Cops say they have asked the companies housed in the business park to provide the details to maintain law and order. Activists and lawyers slammed the police notice and called it “unwarranted profiling” of people from J&K. “For law and order purpose, please give the details of employees who are originally from J&K and are working in various companies at Manyata Embassy Park in Nagawara Ring Road,” the notice issued by Sampigehalli police station on March 5 read.
The notice is signed by the station house officer and seeks names of employees from J&K, their mobile numbers, current address in Bengaluru, and the duration of their stay/work at the respective companies.
